St. James Condominium - stalled


Oaktree Development

Oaktree Development and St. James's Episcopal Church plan to build a condominium replacing the old car wash and parish house.

After a lengthy and messy process, the Planning Board has granted a revised special permit for the project in March 2011.

As of March 2015, the Parish Hall is vacated and the site is surrounded by construction fences. There has been no perceptible progress for several years, apparently because of ongoing lawsuits and appeals. The abandoned car wash building is collapsing and the site remains an eyesore.

Here is a collection of information about the proposal, including materials submitted to the Planning Board and the Historical Commission, and various comments and reports on the hearings.
