Support Growing Across the City for More Compact Development
The Board of Directors and membership of the Lengsfield Lofts Condominium Association, the adjoining property owners to the proposed 16-story, 187-foot tall Tracage condominium project in the Historic Warehouse District Area, voted unanimously on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, to withhold their support for any project on that site that exceeds the 125 feet height limit recommended in the draft comprehensive zoning ordinance created to accompany the city’s new master plan.
Tracage Development appeared before the City’s Board of Zoning Adjustments on March 11 seeking an extension of time to “allow us to have some additional runway to ensure that we appease our neighbors,” according to Stephen King, Spectrum Capital vice president. The BZA granted their request. But neighbors are far from happy.
