Developers Going Back to Drawing Board for Proposed Condos on Pleasant Street
The Planning Board told the builders to move the building which had been planned to go on a town easement.
Developers of a 14-condo development proposed for 192 Pleasant St. must redo plans because the building would have sat on a town easement.
The building, proposed by Acton-based Burkhard Corp., would have gone on top of a section of the town's 50-foot-wide easement for a sewer line, Watertown's Director of Economic Development and Planning Steve Magoon said, according to a report on Boston.com.
Plans call for the building to be made up of one- and two bedroom condos, according to the report.
Burkhard appeared before the Planning Board on Jan. 9 seeking a special permit to build the condo building.
The building would be the latest housing development to be built in the Pleasant Street Corridor. Zoning for the area was changed by town officials to encourage redevelopment of the former industrial area near the bank of the Charles River. The site of the proposed condo building currently has an industrial building on it.
The 192 Pleasant St. project will be back on the agenda at the Planning Board's Feb. 13 meeting.
