A Milton developer is asking the BPDA to let him reduce the amount of garage parking he has to provide at a 49-unit apartment building between Cummins Highway and American Legion Highway, next to the Stop & Shop, from 61 spaces to 49.
In a filing with the BPDA, an attorney for Diamaid McGregor says that the mechanical stacking system originally proposed for 375 Cummins Highway is no longer manufactured and "there are no alternatives that can provide that level of parking without the loss of much desired green space." He is not proposing any other changes to the building, which won BPDA approval in 2020 and zoning-board approval in 2021.
The filing also says, by the way, that McGregor is now the developer of the project, which was originally proposed by City Realty of Brookline. McGregor bought the almost one-acre parcel from a City Realty LLC, known as A Limited Liability Company, LLC, for $1.85 million in August, according to Registry of Deeds records.
