NASHUA – A proposal by a national acquisitions firm to build a 54-unit assisted-living facility on the property of the old Nim-Cor site on Amherst Street got Zoning Board approval Tuesday night.

The applicant, RD Acquisitions LLC, received a land-use variance, which it needs because the Land Use Code lists no specific category for an assisted-living facility.

The proposed facility, which RD Acquisitions describes as a “memory care,” or Alzheimer’s, facility, will be a one-story building with a central office and three residential wings.

The ZBA agreed with the applicant that such a facility will have no negative impact on the value of surrounding properties, will generate “very little” additional traffic and will have no detrimental affect on the neighborhood.

Access will be off the existing Nimcor Drive, and because residents will not be driving their own automobilies, the proposed 51-space parking lot will be sufficient for staff and visitors.

The wedge-shaped property, roughly 8.5 acres in size, is on the north side of Amherst Street across from Round Pond and Cellu Drive. It is currently owned by Nashua RE Holdings LLC, which lists an address of Rosemont, Ill., and is assessed at roughly $3.3 million.
