Plymouth: Planning board supports rental development project at old Armory

A new vision for the old Armory in downtown Plymouth is being supported by the Planning Board–the Board ruled in favor of plans to convert the historic structure to eighteen rental units.

The Armory was built in the early1900s and any architectural plans must pass state historic commission review, which has been done, according to Rick Vayo of the Megryco Company:

“We filed with Mass Historic. We have their initial comments—we’re really just waiting for their letter of approval.”

Twelve of the units will have two bedrooms and six will be one bedroom apartments. Vayo believes the rental market is strong:

“With the recession, and credit crunch and things like that, we really feel strongly that the rental market’s going to stay very good for both younger and older folks in the coming years.”

Vayo is purchasing additional property to meet parking needs:

“We’re in the process of purchasing 11 Clyfton which will mitigate the parking issues associated with the project.

The Board’s scheduled review of the special permit for greater than 8 units proposed for the former Registry of Deeds building did not take place –this due to a request by the applicant to withdraw without prejudice.
