Developer seeks zoning change for proposed Beverly plaza

Meeting set for Tuesday night on Brimbal project


The first phase of the project also involves widening part of Brimbal Avenue from two lanes to four lanes; putting traffic lights or roundabouts at the intersections of the connector road with Sohier Road and Brimbal Avenue; and putting a traffic light at the intersection of Herrick Street Extension and Brimbal Avenue.

The project would cost about $5 million, which would be paid for by the state.

In the application, the city said the shopping plaza, called North Shore Commons, “will act as a gateway and catalyst for further investment in the surrounding commercially zoned area.”

The architect for North Shore Commons is Prellwitz Chilinski Associates of Cambridge, which the application described as “one of the leading designers of retail centers in New England.” The firm designed Legacy Place in Dedham, the South Station retail concourse in Boston and the Market Street development being built in Lynnfield.

The public hearing is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
