Legal Notice Applicant, Urgent Care Centers of New England, Inc. and Owner, KLT Corp, seek a Special Permit per SZO §7.13.A to establish a medical office. CCD 45 Zone. Ward 4.
Recommendation Conditional Approval
Subject Property The subject property is located in an existing shopping center that is on an approximately 74,983 square foot lot. Brunello's, a restaurant, used to occupy the property that is under review. Previously, it had been other restaurants with different names. The Winter Hill Bank mortgage center (formerly a Citibank) and Walgreens are tenants in the other building on the site. There is parking in front of, between, and behind the building fronting Heath Street. The site is a former car dealership which was converted for these retail uses decades ago. The city is currently working on a neighborhood planning process for Winter Hill. During the week of October 27, 2014 the City, with consultants, hosted a three day charrette in Winter Hill. The charrette culminated in a presentation on October 29, 2014. The city is also simultaneously working on the design of the Central Broadway streetscape project, which is seeking to create a more multi-modal street on Broadway between McGrath Highway and Magoun Square. The City continues to follow up on the charrette and will have further presentations in the upcoming months before preparing the neighborhood plan. Nonetheless, most charrette ideas surrounding this area were seeking to create a more mixed-use walkable center for Winter Hill, with buildings fronting streets, parking under or behind buildings and new development on key parcels in close proximity to the intersection of Temple Street and Broadway, including the subject parcel. During the charrette, the subject property was sketched to show the redevelopment potential, image below.
Proposal The proposal before the Board is for a first floor medical use in the existing building. CareWell Urgent Care Center would occupy the building which is approximately 3,000 square feet. A ramp will be remodeled on the south side of the building. There is an additional signage case under review, PB 2014-20.
Green Building Practices None listed on the application.
