A housing development, with two potential results, is being planned for a 6.5-acre property off of South Main Street in Natick.

The property, located at 216-218 South Main St., is the planned site of a development led by 216-218 South Main Street Natick LLC, a Wayland-based entity managed by Anthony Gagliardi, John Garofalo, and Tom Sibley. 

Garofalo and Sibley are managers and co-founders of Arris Partners, a privately held real estate investment company based in Concord, which owns Central Massachusetts properties including a 53,000-square-foot warehouse on Gold Street in Worcester and a 128,592-square-foot warehouse in Leominster.  

Plans submitted to the Town of Natick Planning Board in the run-up to its Wednesday night meeting offer two possible development plans: One would comply with existing zoning requirements and calls for the construction of six single-family homes and five duplexes, and another plan would require a waiver from the planning board, resulting in the construction of six one-family homes and five three-unit townhouses. 

The needed variance is in relation to the town’s open space residential development rules, which attempt to encourage projects to preserve the natural environment.

Both plans call for the construction of a shared driveway through the middle of the development and the inclusion of six-to-eight visitor parking spaces. Each proposed unit would have its own one-car garage, as well as a deck in the rear of each unit and a porch in front.
