Residential Development Proposed For Southside Tavern

By SCOTT JACKSON

Ward 4 Councillor Brian Palmucci will host a community meeting Wednesday to discuss a developer’s proposal to build a 48-unit residential building on the site of Southside Tavern on Liberty Street.

The meeting is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Morrissette Post, located at 81-83 Liberty St.

Attorneys Robert Harnais and David Mahoney said the owners of the site hope to construct a six-story building on the site the bar now occupies. The first two floors would include 71 parking spaces with the 48 residential units located on the upper floors.

“We feel that due to the proximity of the [Quincy] Adams train station, this would be consistent with the transit-oriented development (TOD) that is presently needed,” the applicant’s attorneys wrote in a letter to Palmucci.

The parcel at 73 Liberty Street contains 0.39 acres of land in an Industrial A zoning district, according to the city’s online property records.

The project would require approval from both the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals, Palmucci said in a letter to resident.
