MARLBOROUGH – Lincoln Street’s transformation is underway.
Two major projects – Alta French Hill and 272 Lincoln – are in the early stages of development. A third – Armory at French Hill – is undergoing final site plan review.
Alta French Hill
The Alta French Hill development will be located on the corner of Lincoln and Mechanic streets. All buildings on this site have been demolished; construction of the garage is underway.
This will be a mixed-use development, including 10,074 square feet of ground-floor retail and commercial space; 276 dwelling units; and an on-site parking garage with 448 spaces.
There will also be 22 off-street parking spaces and a restroom building adjacent to the Assabet River Rail Trail.
272 Lincoln St.
This property sits across the street from the Sts. Anargyroi Orthodox Church. The building has been demolished, and the billboard has been removed.
The project will be a 12-unit, three-story building with on-site accessory parking – a total of 12 two-bedroom units, with four units on each floor. There will be access off Cashman and Lincoln streets.
Armory at French Hill
The plans are undergoing final site plan review conditions, according to Building Commissioner Tin Htway.
The project would consist of 17 units — 15 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom units, along with parking for 32 spaces.
The framework for the mixed-use project at 28 S. Bolton St. is being constructed.
When completed, the project will consist of a five-story building with two ground-floor retail units; 36 residential units (one- and two-bedroom), and 30 ground-floor parking spaces.
Work is also underway to convert the former Fish restaurant on Granger Boulevard into Wemmy’s, and the former Wildwood on Route 20 east into a Brazilian restaurant and bakery.
