Tear Down For Condos? Hearing At CPC

(11.15) Make way for the Wayland Condominium Development and more of that cheesy, modular crap getting thrown up all around town. Unfortunately, developers want to demolish the existing 19th-century building. (McBride’s Pub will stay.) From the Providence Preservation Society:

Myles Standish Associates on behalf of Capstone Properties will appear before the City Planning Commission to propose the demolition of the existing 1892 building at 230 Waterman Street in Wayland Square. You can review the existing preliminary plans here. We believe that any plans for the lot can and should include the existing building rather than outright demolition. The meeting will be on [Tuesday], November 15 at 4:45pm. You can review the agenda here, and attend in person or over Zoom.

This issue is listed first on the agenda:

The applicant is proposing to demolish the existing building to construct a four story, mixed-use building with a commercial unit on the ground floor and 12 residences on the three upper stories, with internal parking. The lot is zoned C-2 and the applicant is requesting a waiver from submission of state approvals at the preliminary plan stage.

The plan is for twelve condos on four floors. The plans provide zero (0) vehicle spaces for commercial/non-residential use and twenty-four (24) for residential use. These spaces will be on the first floor, so the Waterman side will be the facade of a parking garage. Don’t worry, there will be planters.

CPC hearing, 4:45pm, Tuesday, November 15, 1st floor, Doorley Building, 444 Westminster Street, (directions)
