40B Project Back on the Table
Norton Patch - almost 5 years
Plans for the Chapter 40 B multiple housing project known as Turtle Crossing have resurfaced after four years on the back burner, recast into what the new developer says is a design with less environmental impact and a more efficient layout.  Turtle Crossing’s first developer was Nick Mirrione, and the project was permitted by the zoning board under the state’s Comprehensive Permit regulations in 2008.  New developers Roberto Arista and Marc Daigle of Dakota Partners told selectmen the complex will still offer the original 176 units, but will cut the number of bedrooms by 56, because 56 of the units will be changed from two-bedroom to one-bedroom apartments.  While the original plans called for multiple two-story buildings that “meandered throughout the land,” according to Arista, the new design will reduce the “massing” of the project by creating seven three-story buildings. None of the buildings are now at the back of the property where the land is in the wat ...
