$30 million rental housing project at Brushwood Farm gets warm welcome
A proposal for a mixed-income, rental housing development at Brushwood Farm is on a fast track, winning early, enthusiastic backing from several town boards and committees, including the Select Board.
The revised version of the 36 Pittsfield Road site plan was presented to the town’s Affordable Housing Trust Committee on Monday, as well as to the Planning Board on Tuesday, which unanimously approved the plan. It originally was unveiled in June by the Boston regional office of developer Pennrose LLC.
