Ciminelli hopes to win over neighbors with changes to waterfront project

Continued pressure from residents of the Waterfront Village brought the developer of a new condo project back to the negotiating table and drawing board, leading to a series of changes that are now up for review by the city.

Four months after receiving approval for its planned West End condominium project, Ciminelli Real Estate Corp. is returning to the city Planning Board on Dec. 3 with eight revisions to its proposal.

They range from slight shifts in the location of one unit – by 10.7 feet – to new concrete patios, mailboxes and condensing units. While they appear minor in the scope of the overall concept, several changes address lingering issues of major concern to residents of neighboring waterfront buildings, while others will help Ciminelli sell the condos.
