The portion on the southerly side of Guest Street is bounded to the north by Edward C. Joyce, Trustee/B.L. Makepeace, Inc., and to the west by Life Street. Only a small 8,049 square foot parcel on the southerly side of Guest Street is not contiguous to any of the other parcels (collectively, the “Project Site”). The PNF describes four new projects (each, a “Proposed Project,” and collectively, the “Proposed Projects”) to be located on the Project Site: (i) a new Office Use building with accessory parking and loading to house New Balance employees, managers and officers, together with retail, restaurant and service uses; (ii) up to three (3) new office buildings with accessory parking and loading, restaurant, retail, and service uses; (iii) a hotel with accessory parking and loading, restaurant, retail, and service uses; and (iv) a sports facility with accessory parking and loading, restaurant, retail, and service uses. The PNF sets forth the detailed description of the Proposed Projects, proposed impacts and appropriate mitigation to minimize and improve existing conditions. The PNF also describes the anticipated public benefits of the Proposed Projects. The focus of this meeting will be on environmental analysis, open-space programming and traffic improvements.
