Citizens for Affordable Housing in Newton Development Organization (CAN-DO) has proposed to re-develop 424-432 Cherry St into 9 residential units for chronically homeless individuals and families. This 14,000 sq/ft property, located at the corner of Cherry & Webster, is currently being used as offices for a financial management business. CAN-DO’s $6 million re-development proposal would not alter the exterior (historically significant) but basically gut the interior add 3 residential units in the back of the property.
The application/hearing/decision process with the City is going to play out over the next 6 months. For more information, please find the full proposal here:
