Marlborough-City Councilors granted a request to extend the permit for the construction of a multi-family dwelling at 487 Lincoln St., the former Cozy Café, at the council’s Jan. 9 meeting. Aldo Cipriano, attorney for the project, asked to extend time limitations until on or before Tuesday, March 14.
The 11-unit residential structure will include five studio and six apartment style units, according to Cipriano, who is representing Tigercat Properties, LLC of Framingham, developer for the project. Plans are for the construction of a three-story building which will be attached to the former bar. There will be 21 parking spaces on the property, according to the site plan.
Cynthia Gleason, owner of CJG Enterprises, owns the building which she purchased a year after the bar closed in March 2013. Gleason owns 24 units in Marlborough, including the 24 Silver St. development.
City Councilor Joseph Delano, chair of the Urban Affairs Committee, said he had reservations about allowing the construction.
“I am not sure it will be helpful to the city overall,” he said, stating there is the possibility of adding more school children which could impose a burden on that area of the city.
