A proposed townhouse development at Wayland Town Center inched one step closer to reality on Tuesday.
The Planning Board, during its Aug. 27 meeting, heard developer Brendan Homes’ proposal for a reduced version of its townhouses from 88 units to 42 units (with 84 bedrooms), according to Town Planner Sarkis Sarkisian. The complex would be known as Wayland Green Place.
The units would be located behind the new Panera Bread in town center.
Overall, Sarkisian said, the Planning Board was pleased with the proposal, and continued the site plan public hearing to Sept. 10. The board requested Sarkisian compose a possible site plan decision to be reviewed and discussed at the September meeting, according to Sarkisian.
“The board likes the plans, liked the development,” Sarkisian told Wayland Patch. “I think everyone from the board is very happy with the project, this vision.”
The new version of the proposal also reduces the sewer use by 55 percent to 9,240 gallons per day and the pavement use by 18 percent to 110,320 square feet, according to project documents.
As part of the board’s mitigation efforts, the developer said he is willing to chip in $150,000 toward the $300,000 needed to finish the town green, according to Sarkisian.
“I know some of the board members were very excited to see that,” Sarkisian said.
