NEWBURYPORT — Two projects on or near Merrimac Street will come before the city’s Historical Commission when it meets Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in City Hall.
The commission will consider an application for partial demolition of a property at 40 Merrimac St., which until recently housed Davis Auto Parts.
Restaurateur Joseph Leone, the new owner, wants to turn the building into a 400-plus seat brew restaurant and he is seeking permission to make changes.
In a separate matter, owners of a property at 2 Mechanics Court are seeking a permit to move a building. Plans call for a condominium development of eight to 10 units on the property, which borders Merrimac Street, and a historic structure must be moved to accommodate construction.
Also, permission to demolish two structures is being sought. One property is at 39-41 Ashland St. and the other is at 17 Ship St.
