A project that was set to bring a large number of residential apartments to Fall River appears to be off the table, according to those familiar with the situation.
1265 MAIN STREET LLC, care of Atty. Peter A. Saulino, initially sought a Variance through the City of Fall River Zoning Board of Appeals to demolish the existing strip mall at 101 President Avenue, however, it was tabled from November’s meeting to December’s and is now being scrapped altogether.
The plan was to rebuild a mixed-use concept on the site, consisting of 350 residential apartment units, a parking garage, and retail space.
The petition was looking to wave side yard setback, building height, type of use, and unit count in a B-L (Local Business) Zoning District and an HD-1 (Housing Development) Overlay District.
The proposal came on the heels of over 850 units getting Zoning Board approval for variances and special permits in September.
