Tilia (Parcel U Townhouses)
Jamaica Plain, MA
Kaplan Construction recently provided preconstruction and construction management services for a sustainable urban living community in Jamaica Plain. The 49,300 SF development is Phase A of a three-phase housing development project and is currently the largest mixed‐use development in the Forest Hills station area.
The townhouses, named Tilia after the neighborhood’s abundance of Tilia trees, consist of five buildings divided into 24 modern energy-efficient townhouse-style condominiums, with three of the 24 units designated as affordable. Designed to be LEED certified, the wood-framed buildings feature double insulated walls, triple pane windows, and high efficiency heating and cooling systems. All units feature open floor plans in a variety of layouts ranging from 1+bed, 1 bath to 3 bed, 2.5 bath, contemporary kitchens with Caesarstone counters and stainless steel appliances, in-unit laundry, garage parking, and designated storage units.
Tilia is located in Boston’s hip Jamaica Plain neighborhood adjacent to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Forest Hills Orange Line Station for both T and commuter rail access. Residents have the best of city living, with a plethora of local restaurants, shops, bike paths and parks, including the Arnold Arboretum, all within walking distance.
