Conservation Commission to review proposed parking site

Parking expansion part of mill development in Nashua

NASHUA – The city’s Conservation Commission is doing a site review Monday, looking at the proposed expanded parking area for the Franklin Street mill redevelopment project.

Brady Sullivan Properties recently added more than 30 apartment units to the large-scale development. The company, through the corporate entity Lofts 34 LLC, went from 168 apartments up to 200 in the project. The developer has worked on renovating the Franklin Street mill property for more than a year.

The commission will be looking over property at 5 p.m. Monday.

The project lines up with city goals of adding housing to the downtown to meet demand. Mayor Jim Donchess said in his State of the City address that between the Franklin Street project and the Renaissance project off Bridge Street, Nashua is looking to add 350 housing units, with more in the works in other locations.

The city has already given the go-ahead for the project’s initial 168-unit proposal, and Lofts 34 LLC is going before the Planning Board this week for a site plan review on the amended proposal.
