Four Family Pitched for the End of Moore Street

At Monday night’s Harbor View Citizens Association’s March meeting Monday night, Attorney Jeff Drago pitched his client’s plans to develop a parcel of land that two longtime East Boston families own at the end of Moore Street.

Both the White and Gaeta families own the three lots from 116 and 120 Moore Street and are looking to expand their family’s living space by converting a parcel of land on their poverty into a four family home.

“These are two longtime East Boston families and their family is growing,” said Drago. “In order to remain in the neighborhood they have decided to develop a potion of land on their property.”

The White and Gaeta families occupy the three adjoining homes from 116 to 120 Moore Street. To the left of the three home and next door to 120 Moore is a side yard bigger enough to be subdivided and developed.

The plan, said Drago, is to subdivide the lot and make one lot a 6,149 sq. ft. parcel so the two families can construct a four-unit, 35 ft. building with four parking spaces for their growing family.

This was the first meeting on the project and HVNA is planning to have a second meeting and vote on the proposal after the White and Gaeta families hold an abutters meeting with neighbors.

Drago said that he expects the project will need zoning relief for Use, Parking, Floor Area Ratio, Height, Side Yard, and Front Yard.
