Members of the Gove Street Citizens Association (GSCA) voted on two development projects at the group’s November meeting last week.
For the first project GSCA members voted 8 to 3 against a project at 10 Geneva St. The proposal calls for erecting a four story building on a 5,195 square-foot lot. The building would include seven units of housing with seven off-street parking spaces. All the units would be market rate condo units, consisting of two-bedroom and two-bathroom units.
The only negative comments about the project came from the abutters next door. While their home is only three stories and 32 feet they felt the four-story, 37.2-foot proposed building was far too tall. They asked if it could be reduced to three stories.
GSCA members then voted 7 to 4 in favor of a project at 255 Maverick St. There the proposal is to raze the existing manufacturing building and erect a four story mixed use building. The building would include nine residential units, one retail unit and nine off-street parking spaces. Each unit would consist of two bedroom, two bathroom market-rate condo units. The retail space would include a low-intensity type business as to not create too much traffic in the area.
