Concord, MA – Northland Residential Corporation, a national real estate development firm, has received approvals to develop Wolcott Woods, an age-restricted townhome community, on a 47-acre parcel located off of Canton Avenue in Concord.
The necessary entitlements were granted in accordance with Milton’s Great Estate Planned Unit Development zoning bylaw and the town’s Scenic Road bylaw.
Plans call for designating approximately 60% of the land as open space, preserving three existing historic homes on the property and constructing 50 architecturally-compatible, two- and three-bedroom townhomes.
The new development promises to fill a void in the local market for townhomes specifically designed for active adult households and will provide six homes for moderate-income households throughout the town.
Northland’s project team includes legal advisor Ned Corcoran, Esq. of Corcoran & Associates in Milton; architect James Velleco of Grazado Velleco Architects; landscape architect Alan Aukeman of Ryan Associates; and civil engineer Deborah Keller of Merrill Engineers and Land Surveyors.
John C. Dawley, president of Northland Residential, views collaboration with the town and the abutters throughout the permitting process to be key to tailoring a new project to the unique fabric of the community.
“Our team collaborated for well over three years with Milton town officials at the planning and zoning boards, as well as those living in the immediate area, to refine our architecture, site plan, streetscapes, landscaping and open space programs to minimize the impact on abutters and achieve an appropriate “fit” for the neighborhood,” said Dawley.
Site work at Wolcott Woods is expected to begin in the fall and the first homes are slated to be delivered by the summer of 2020.
