SCC submitted a Special Permit Application to the ZBA for a hearing on July 16 to adaptively re-use the former East Somerville American Legion Post building as 11 homeownership units, 8 of which will be restricted as affordable homeownership opportunities and 3 of which will be market rate homeownership opportunities. The affordable units will target to both low- and middle income households.
SCC and Ward 1 Alderman Matthew McLaughlin conducted 3 very well-attended neighborhood meetings prior to the July 16th hearing. SCC, pursuant to neighborhood input, plans to increase the overall green space at the site, as well as provide attractive and generously sized units. 163 Glen street is a stone’s throw from the planned Washington Street Green Line Extension stop.
