On Dec. 22, the Worcester Planning Board recommended rezoning of a former mill on Webster Street, moving a proposed housing project forward to City Council.

The project would convert the old building at 110 Webster St. into 17 or 18 units, according to Nick Lewis, owner of Worcester-based Maverick Real Estate Investment & Development, who is proposing the project.

The board voted unanimously to recommend City Council approve rezoning the property. It is currently zoned for manufacturing use, but Lewis is asking to have it included in the adaptive reuse overlay district, enabling use as a residential building.

Along with renovating the existing mill into apartments, Lewis said at the meeting he plans to demolish the front component of the structure to use the space as a parking area.

The units would be market rate, with roughly seven loft-style apartments on the second floor.

The building is currently owned by Worcester Chemical Distribution Corp., as Lewis is still in a due diligence process and has not yet closed on a purchase, he said in an earlier interview with WBJ.
