I’ve recently heard rumblings about a new 40B housing project that’s being proposed on the south side of Route 9 near Crystal Pond Road. The Metrowest Daily News today published more details.
Developer Robert Moss, owner of Moss Development Inc., wants to build eleven 3-story apartment buildings to house 140 units on the 17-acre site. The project would be called Madison Place. Moss is the same developer who is looking to convert nearly 18 wooded acres on the other side of Route 9 into a residential housing development.
The Madison Place parcel is the same spot eyed by Avalon Bay for a 200-unit 40B project back in 2007. That project was ultimately abandoned because of the economy.
You can read more about this latest 40B project in the Metrowest Daily News. Selectmen are expected to discuss the project at their meeting on Tuesday at 7:30 in the Town House Hearing Room.
Update 5/23: The Board of Selectmen will not discuss the project on Tuesday 5/24 as originally scheduled. The agenda item was postponed at the request of the developer. No word yet on when it will be rescheduled.
