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.
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. Details of this proposal, including the site application documents submitted to MassHousing can be found by following this link. To follow this project, residents can follow the Board of Selectmen, Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals by subscribing to receive email/text notification of meeting agendas.
104 Boston Post Road - Not Approved by Selectmen (as proposed)
The developer of this project has received notification of site approval from MassHousing for its proposed 154 rental units on the 2.1 acres behind the old Sibley House (next to the gas station). Subsequently, an application has been submitted to the Zoning Board of Appeals for a comprehensive permit.
Several Town boards and departments have provided comment on this project as proposed. All documents can be found by following this link. Residents can follow progress by subscribing to receive email/text notification of meeting agendas for the Zoning Board of Appeals. The public hearings will begin in March.
