The developer of a proposed condo project at the tip of Port Norfolk, filed plans with the state on Friday that show a much smaller development in response to vociferous neighbor complaints about a large project in an area largely cut off from the rest of the city by I-93 and Neponset Circle.
South Boston developer Ryan Sillery is now proposing a total of 96 condos in three buildings, rather than the 170 he first proposed last year, and the elimination of a 25-room boutique hotel, on a 3.6-acre site now occupied by a marina and boat sales and repair facility, next to the Venezia Restaurant.
The proposed Neponset Wharf would now have 170 parking spaces, down from the 185 first proposed, and 3,000 square feet of for a market and deli - down from 6,500. Sillery is also proposing to replace the current 95 marina slips with new slips and to build a new boat-storage building.
Roughly 2 acres of the site would be maintained as open space. Residential units would all be placed above the estimated flood line for major storms as predicted through 2070.
In addition to state environmental officials, the project also needs the approval of the BPDA.
