Mixed Use Housing Development

In 2000, the city adopted mixed use regulations (Special Regulation, Section IV.N "Mixed Use Regulations") which introduces mixed-use development in the downtown area.


Mixed-use allows the redevelopment of commercial properties to include residential and commercial uses in 1 area.

Residential use will bring much needed vitality and consumer demands that require a better market mix than is currently seen in downtown Framingham.


Three mixed-use projects have been completed downtown:
  • Dennison Triangle (76 condominiums)
  • Kendall Building (25 apartments)
  • Amsden Building (24 apartments)
The city's current Transit Oriented Development (TOD) planning initiative is reviewing this concept and zoning revisions are expected to be brought before town meeting in 2015.
