Redbrook relocates senior housing complex
"concerns we have heard relative to proximity, scale, and parking"
In an abrupt turn around AD Makepeace, the developer of Redbrook, will relocate a controversial senior housing complex across Wareham Road rather than at the playground site behind the Meeting House.
In an email obtained by 1620Today, AD Makepeace said “we feel that this plan addresses all the concerns we have heard related to location and use.”
Residents objected to the parking and scope of the project in the area adjacent to the Meeting House and the community garden. Questions remain however if Redbrook will still be able to access $4M in CPC funds for the project.
The new design includes one parking spot per unit for the 62+ housing complex with 52 total units.

“The proposed alternative plan shows a few on-street parallel parking spaces consistent with what exists today, removes the head-in along Wareham Road, and includes an interior parking lot inside the parcel…This alternative plan also alleviates any concerns regarding impacts to the Community Garden and increases the distance from existing homeowners,” according to the email sent to residents today.
