Developer Armando Petruzziello is proposing a 24-unit condominium development at the site of the former Waban Health Center. The developer and his architect, Mike McKay of McKay Associates, will be presenting their proposal to the community at the May 9th meeting of the Waban Area Council. The new building would occupy generally the same footprint as the current building, except for some slight expansions (most notably along the north side facing Brae Burn). It would add a third floor and be 10 feet higher than the existing building. The units would be comprised of thirteen 1-bedroom units, nine 2-bedroom units, and two 3-bedroom units. As per Newton's current Inclusionary Zoning Ordinance, four of the units will be affordable (three units affordbale to 80% of AMI, one unit affordable to 120% AMI).
The development would have 24 parking spots, all underground. The underground parking garage would be accessed at the front NW corner of the building The project would result in more greenspace than exists currently, due to elimination of the long driveway and outdoor parking area. A “green roof” is planned with solar panels and a roof deck with greenery.
