MARLBOROUGH – The Burrow at 1000 Green District Blvd. may get some new neighbors.
A proposed zoning amendment, filed at the request of Marlborough Apartment Partners 2 LLC, seeks to increase the number of multifamily units in the area from 475 to 950.
The reason, according to Andy Montelli of Post Road Residential, which developed The Burrow – they want to begin the next phase of development within the district.
Montelli appeared with attorney Brian Falk at a public hearing before the City Council on Monday, May 22.
“The Burrow set the standard for multifamily living,” said Montelli.
The Burrow opened in 2022; it features 235 luxury apartment units with a variety of amenities, from walking trails and fitness centers to co-working space and a golf simulator.
According to Montelli, two-thirds of the units have been leased.
“We want to build in places that make good sense,” said Montelli, who cited the area’s proximity to routes 495 and 20 as well as local companies such as Ken’s, as major reasons why Post Road Residential chose to develop in the district.
Falk pointed out that the amendment would require public hearings and special permits; Montelli said that the phase would not begin for at least 2½ years should the amendment be approved.
The next stop for the proposed zoning amendment – the Planning Board on Monday, June 5. After that, it goes to the council’s Urban Affairs Committee.
