Proposal modified for residential development

Continue reading below

Acting on input from town residents, local leaders, and MassHousing, John M. Corcoran and Company has modified its proposal for a 264-unit residential development, The Commons at Weiss Farm. While the number of apartment units at Weiss Farm, off Franklin Street, will remain the same, with 66 units set aside as affordable housing for those earning low to moderate incomes, the new design “will allow for more usable open space and reduce the visual scale of the project,” according to a statement released by the developer on Jan. 13. The updated plans: reduce the length of the apartment buildings by more than 25 percent; add five small town-home buildings at the entrance to the community; reorient larger buildings; and include parking within the largest building. The changes are intended to better integrate the project into the neighborhood and create more open green space.
