“The project, as currently proposed, calls for the construction of 172 units of rental apartments and townhouses on the 3.5-acre, former Whole Foods site at 297-311 Boston Post Road (Route 20).

A minimum of 25% (43 units) would be designated as affordable in perpetuity to families earning 80% of area median income.

The remaining housing units will be rented at market rates.”

Is this Wayland’s attempt to get around the MBTA Communities Act?

No. See the Newton North project for that. It could be a place to dump 40B units though. Some light retail across the street including a Stop & Shop.

Kind of a weird spot still. It's still kind of in the middle of nowhere otherwise. It wouldn't be a bad location commuting to 128 jobs but Boston and Cambridge would be rough.
 
Wayland doesnt have an mbta stop so I dont think they need to comply, right?

Pretty much every city and town within 495 has to comply, except for Boston (and that one tiny town on the South Shore... forget the name)

If only there was some kind of transit corridor nearby, perhaps as close as across the street, that could be developed to offer a direct route to Cambridge and Boston.
