Neighbors of the proposed 150-apartment development complex on the old Grossman’s lot in Wellesley’s Lower Falls have taken their concerns about traffic and neighborhood integrity to court. Town officials say the appeals shouldn’t hold up the project forever, but could create more of a delay. From the Globe:
Jack O’Neil, a principal in National Development, said his company scaled back the proposal in response to neighbors’ concerns. Among other things, he said, the proposal cut a four-story apartment building closest to the residential streets to three stories, eliminating nine of the original 150 apartments.
“We were hoping that would go a long way in addressing neighbors’ concerns,” said O’Neil, “but we obviously didn’t quite get there.”
