MARLBOROUGH – The former Armory at 358 Lincoln St. is getting closer to becoming the Armory on French Hill.

During its Wednesday, Sept. 6, meeting, the City Council’s Urban Affairs Committee approved a special permit for applicant George Voyiatzis to convert the structure into a multifamily residential building.

Committee members spoke highly of the project.

“You’re turning an eyesore into a gem in the community,” said Councilor David Doucette.

“You’re going to be the envy of the city,” said Councilor Donald Landers.

The Armory on French Hill would consist of 17 units – 15 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom units – and parking with 32 spaces.

The permit would still be subject to a site plan review.

The application for the special permit was approved by the City Council during its Monday, Sept. 11, meeting. It will be sent to the city solicitor, then brought back to the council for a vote on either Monday, Sept. 18, or Monday, Oct. 2.
