CHELMSFORD – A commercial building at 9 Acton Road in the city center could take on new life, as a home for an 18-unit townhouse complex, with a planning council hearing on the project set to continue until the board meeting on April 13.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m.

Developer John Faneros and 9 Acton Rd., LLC, is proposing a townhouse complex, with a scaled-down plan from the 22 units originally proposed.

The property is also known as 13 Acton Road.

The site plan for the updated proposal calls for 18 three-bedroom units, with two parking spaces per unit – one garage space and one surface, plus four guest spaces.

The building once housed several businesses.

Developers are applying for a special permit under the provisions of the city’s Village Center Overlay District and Inclusive Housing Bylaw. The revised plan also shows updates to architectural elevations and floor plans.

The property has a assessed value of $2,758,500, according to appraiser records.

The main building will have a maximum height of 35 feet and consist of three stories, according to the proposal’s supplementary data report.

The official owner is Jerrold Yoffa Trustee, of Marblehead.

The current proposal represents revisions based on concerns expressed by neighbors as well as members of the Planning Board. The property is at the intersection of Acton Road – also Route 27 – and Route 4.

The proposal is also the latest in a recent history of site development proposals.

Warehouse proposals

The April 13 Planning Board meeting will feature an ongoing hearing on the Davis Companies’ proposed warehouse, dubbed DIV Riverneck, 191, 195 and 199-201 Riverneck Road.

The plan has drawn opposition from some neighbors, including traffic and safety issues.

The Planning Board will also consider a conceptual redevelopment submission for a vacant office building located at 270 Billerica Road on Route 129.

The proposal calls for the demolition of the 103,932 square foot building and the construction of a new 85,000 square foot warehouse and distribution facility.
