Our friends at the Saint Vincent’s Lower End Neighborhood Association (SVLENA) need your help to speak up about 340 W 2nd Street.
Please help by attending the ZBA meeting on March 11th at 11:30 am at Boston City Hall, Room 801 and speak out against this project because:
- Grossly exceeds the Floor to Area Ratio that is established on the site.
- Developer was unwilling to make height & density changes requested by the community.
- The entire Saint Vinny's Neighborhood Association is against this project.
- Major privacy concerns between proposed building and nearby existing building.
- Will create an unsanitary condition in the small gap between buildings.
- Density issues for the neighborhood.
- (Please feel free to add to this list)
According to SVLENA:
There are many changes that the developer could easily make to the design of this project and still create a profitable building that would be an asset to the neighborhood. However, the development team feels that they can steamroll us to get everything they want and make no real compromises with the community.

Here's the Developer, Richard Glanz & team. The code is 35 ft and he wants variance to build 45+ ft. #340W2ndSt mtg pic.twitter.com/agPRt5c6nw
