Current Proposals

133 Boston Post Road - Board of Selectmen Approved (with conditions)


Boston Properties has presented a potential housing development concept for the Biogen Idec/Monster site (133 Boston Post Road). This is an early concept that was discussed as a friendly partnership development in the Housing Production Plan. The proposal was submitted to MassHousing in December for 345 rental units with 25% set aside at the 80% area mean income (AMI). If approved, this project would substantially address Weston's affordable housing shortfall and provide mixed-family rental units, as outlined in the housing needs and strategies identified in the Housing Production Plan.

Conditions


The Selectmen have sent a conditional letter of support to MassHousing, which requests further investigation into school, traffic and financial impacts to the Town, as well as a request to reduce the total number of units and to find an appropriate access road for the development. The previously proposed Church Street access has been objected to by the Board of Selectmen and the Planning Board. Boston Properties is seeking an alternate access route.

Plans


Details of this proposal, including the site application documents submitted to MassHousing can be found by following this link. To follow the various public meetings of this project, residents should follow the Planning Board and Board of Selectmen.

The comprehensive permit hearings through the Zoning Board of Appeals has been temporarily halted. Residents can subscribe to receive notification of when meeting agendas and minutes are posted to the website.
