The BPDA will host a virtual public meeting on Mon., July 8. at 6 p.m. to discuss a proposed change to the next phase of the Olmsted Village housing development on Harvard Street along the Dorchester and Mattapan border. The project, which includes two, three-story buildings with condos and one four-story building of apartments for families with mixed incomes on a 10-acre site that was once home to the Boston State Hospital, was approved by the BPDA board in 2023.

The developer, Lena New Boston, has recently sought to add more units to the proposal, bringing the total number to 226 from 197. The plan also calls for fewer parking spaces and makes adjustments to the affordability program.

The meeting will be conducted over Zoom with a presentation followed by a discussion with members of the Impact Advisory Group appointed to give oversight to the development.
