Using Pentaho to send addresses to Mapquest for long/lat info.

This is the URL I am sending:

www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/address?key=MYKEY&inFormat=json&json={location: lookup_address}, options:{thumbMaps:false,maxResults:1}

The "lookup_address" field is the concatenated address for the API.

It keeps returning Invalid query.
Unable to get result from specified URL :

http://www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/address?key=MYKEY&json={location: {lookup_address}, options:{thumbMaps:false,maxResults:1}}&address=%70%20SouthBay%20Ave.%22%22Boston%22%22MA%22%2202118%22 

If I put this into the URL it is fine.

www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/address?key=APPKEY&inFormat=json&json={location:%2270%20South%20Bay%20Ave.%20Boston,%20MA%2002118%22}

What is the proper syntax to send the string properly?
