Business (B)

The owners of the property intend to redevelop it. There are potential environmental constraints, including wetlands, as well as issues – potential neighborhood impacts, appropriate scale of development, intensity of use, traffic, etc. – that require further study.

 

What could happen here?:

1.

This site is zoned for heavier commercial uses. Is that still the most appropriate use for the site?

2.

What neighborhood needs could be met by the redevelopment of this property?

3.

Can targeted redevelopment of this property be resilient to future floods and sea level rise, while protecting the most environmentally sensitive portions of the site?
