Redevelopers of a former Jamaica Plain nursing home site are proposing to scale back their plans for an apartment complex, citing significant financial challenges posed by the current construction market.
Eden Properties and Samuels & Associates, which won Boston Planning & Development Agency approval last March for 167 apartments on the former Goddard House Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center site, now want to build 149 units and have shaved 15,000 square feet from their proposal.
While they still plan 110 units in the former nursing home, they want 39 instead of 57 apartments in a new adjacent, five-story building slated for the two-acre site at 201-205 South Huntington Ave. and overlooking the Jamaicaway.
