Mark Development Plans 2020

Mark Development filed a revised special permit application for its proposed mixed-use project at Riverside in December 2019. It did so after the Newton City Council approved compromise zoning changes -- which RightSize Riverside helped make happen -- limiting the development's size to 1.025 million square feet. You can see the special permit documents here.

Click here to view the design plans that Mark Development presented at the Jan. 14, 2020 City Council meeting. The plans show some of the design changes made between September -- before zoning was passed -- and December 2019, under the revised special permit filing. Heights on many of the buildings are lower under this new scheme. The proposed development is now 63.8% residential and 36.2% commercial, a major change from earlier plans.

The Land Use Committee of the City Council that will review the special permit has scheduled hearings on important components of Mark Development's application. Click on the link for each meeting to view RightSize Riverside's presentation:
