In Case you missed it... We presented new renderings and drawings of the updated program for the project at the Planning Board’s August 17 meeting showing a reduction in the number of housing units, and the lowering of some building heights, and new architectural design based on your feedback! We also met with the residents of Royal Crest and continued conversations about the future of the property. To get a sense of the overall fit and feel of the redevelopment, you can view a to-scale video rendering, here
We will be updating our content and comment topics to hear more from residents, neighbors, and friends of the Town of North Andover, as well as holding community events as time goes on. Check back here for more information or schedule a coffee chat with our team!
Trinity presented new renderings and drawings of the updated program for the project at the Planning Board’s August 17 meeting. The presentation showed a reduction in the number of housing units, and the lowering of some building heights, and new architectural design, among other changes. These changes were proposed, based upon feedback from the Board, other town officials and staff, North Andover residents and other local stakeholders.
The redevelopment team also presented a new animated video for the community to take a virtual walk through the plan so you get a better understanding of it. You can view the video by clicking on this link.
We received both good feedback from the August 17th meeting, and some requests for the next time the redevelopment team visits with them on September 9th.
As part of the redevelopment team’s outreach effort, we also held an informational meeting with current Royal Crest Estates residents on Wednesday evening, August 18th. The goal of the meeting was to provide current residents with an update about the project and discuss future housing options for Royal Crest tenants in the “new” Royal Crest. The team explained that the redevelopment plan does not mean current residents will be displaced. The project will be built, in phases, over a number of years, so there is plenty of time to work with residents on housing options and transitions. It is a priority that current residents be informed, and know what the future holds.
Stay tuned for more updates and opportunities to meet with our team. Now that summer is winding down, and people are returning from their vacations, we will be meeting with the community more often.
I and the Royal Crest redevelopment team would like to thank everyone for providing feedback over the past few months.
We have heard almost unanimous agreement that the existing Royal Crest is beyond its useful life and should be replaced. We set out to take this as an opportunity to remake Royal Crest into an exciting new walkable, sustainable, mixed-use neighborhood that will be a great place to live, work, and play. As we have introduced our plan, we have heard many comments, concerns, and great ideas on our redevelopment plan and be assured we are listening. We look forward to improving our plan with many of your suggestions as we move through the process.
Community feedback is essential to our redevelopment plans, and we will continue our outreach work to gather even more. Since we are relatively early in the project’s development timeline, there is still plenty of opportunity for input. We look forward to meeting as many people in person as possible, as the days get warmer and it gets safer to do so.
Thank you again for participating and sharing your input and questions. We’ll follow up with more updates as soon as we can. In the meantime, please visit our website and check out the Feedback section https://courbanize.com/projects/newroyalcrest/comments to continue the dialogue!
