The Bolyston Ave E project designed by Capitol Hill’s Environmental Works passed through early design guidance in January. Funded by Community House Mental Health Agency and Common Ground, the development is planned to replace the agency’s existing structure.Screen shot 2013-04-29 at 6.02.24 PM

The review board emerged from the January session supportive of the design proposal that best incorporated a 42-inch wide Horse Chestnut tree on the property. “By maintaining the exceptional tree at the rear of the lot and limiting overall building height, providing a better scale and proportion to the surrounding neighborhood structures,” the report on the session notes.
