Hanover R.S. Limited Partnership is proposing the project at 1325 Washington St. under the town's commercial corridor overlay zoning district. The zoning is meant to encourage developers to rehab blighted properties by building multi-unit housing with a commercial component on stretches of Columbian Street and routes 53, 18 and 3A.

The developer and Braintree attorney Frank Marinelli presented the plans for "Hanover Weymouth" to the zoning board of appeals on Wednesday night. The project requires a special permit from the board, but no zoning variances.

The project would have 148 one-bedroom, 108 two-bedroom and 14 three-bedroom apartments spread between two buildings. It would also have 4,200 square feet of retail space and 394 parking spaces. The total area of the buildings is about 344,000 square feet.

The project would house approximately 32 school-aged children, though Marinelli pointed out that the district has seen a drop in school enrollment in recent years.

Marinelli also pointed to a fiscal impact study, which estimated the value of the project at $58.7 million. That would bring in about $693,800 of property tax revenue annually for the town.
