Wooster Square Apartments Get Green Light

Construction can now begin on luxury apartments at the site of Wooster Square’s former Comcast buliding.

The City Plan Commission Wednesday night unanimously approved site plans for the mixed-use development on Chapel Street by the corner of Olive. Construction is expected to be completed in 12 to 18 months.

Frank Caico of developer Spinnaker Residential LLC presented renderings of the facades of both buildings. The development plans to create a “pedestrian-friendly and utilized environment,” in the “underutilized” gap between downtown and Wooster Square, he said.

Two existing Comcast buildings at the address will be demolished and redeveloped. A six-floor building on 630 Chapel St. will contain 166 residential apartments with 7,200 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. A five-floor building across the street at 673 Chapel will contain 66 residential apartments with 2,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space on the ground floor.
