“We will purchase the property this summer, we hope to get through the approval process in the summer, start construction in the mid-to late summer, seven- or eight-month project,” Chinburg said. “Ideally, we’d be leasing apartments a year from now in the spring of 2014.”
Chinburg added that the city has been very supportive of his efforts and he is looking forward to moving things along in the coming weeks.
“We really enjoyed working with the city,” Chinburg said. “Our early discussions with the planner and the officials we’ve met with have been very supportive and want to find ways to get this project off the ground.”
The next Planning Board meeting will be held on Monday, March 25, at 7 p.m. in City Hall Auditorium.
