Proposal Calls for Nearly 350 New Housing Units in Canton
The plan proposes 64 town house units, 80 age-restricted units, and 204 apartments, according to recent reports.
A consultant's report regarding a newly-proposed housing development for 348 units in downtown Canton is expected to be completed by the end of February, according to media reports.
The Canton Board of Selectmen will neither decline or oppose the proposal until they review the report, according to Boston.com.
Details in the proposal include 64 town house units, 80 age-restricted units for residents aged 55 and older, and 204 apartments, according to Boston.com.
Currently, the site comprises buildings with asbestos; to clean up the property would cost about $5 million, according to the Boston.com report.
