Burlington Business Association Director Kelly Devine and Burton Vice President Justin Worthley spoke in favor of a proposed mixed use development on the corner of Pine Street and Flynn Avenue at Wednesday’s Development Review Board hearing.
The project would address the need for workforce housing in Burlington’s South End by adding 30 apartment units; as a part of a project that includes first floor commercial space and a rooftop deck.
“The addition of the 30 units is really important to the health and well-being of that particular part of the community,” Devine said in the Burlington Free Press.
Devine and Worthley testified that South End companies such as Burton, Dealer.com, and Select Design need walkable housing options for employees.
The Development Review Board will hold further deliberations on the project during their meeting on Monday, August 8th at Contois Auditorium.
