Apartment Complex Proposal on Zoning Board Agenda
Plan called for rental apartments and retail space at a lot on State Street.
A developer’s plan to build a six-story apartment building with retail space at an abandoned gas station lot on State Street is up for discussion at Thursday’s zoning board meeting.
The proposed building, at State Street and Queen Anne Road, included 42 rental apartments on the upper five floors with storefronts on the ground level, according to plans unveiled at a February zoning board meeting.
At the time, residents expressed concerns over the project’s impact on traffic in the area. Monique Kim, speaking on behalf of the Plaza Cleaners next door, said she worried construction would damage her the family store.
“We are very concerned that this would cause erosion and cause serious structural problems for the property,” Kim said at the February meeting.
An attorney for the developer had said his client would be willing to meet with concerned residents.
Thursday’s meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Building
