The building would also have 6,200 sq. ft. of retail space, according to the Stormwater Report. That section will be developed by Hanover R.S. Limited Partnership. A parking garage would be built, and would provide 503 of the 519 parking spaces, according to a summary submitted to the Planning Board.

According to the Traffic Study submitted to the Planning Board, more than 2,200 new trips on a weekday would be added to the area due to the residential building along with the 6,200 sq. ft. of commercial space. This includes 161 in the morning rush hour and 215 in the evening peak hours. Nearly 2,350 more trips would be added on a Saturday, according to the study.

The retail complex - with the market and restaurant - would add more than 6,600 trips on a weekday and more than additional 8,900 trips on a Saturday. An estimated 259 new trips would be added during the morning rush hour and 499 in the evening peak, according to the study.
