Orr Block Development Petition Has Been Withdrawn (But Only Temporarily)

The Orr Block developer, Robert Korff, has withdrawn his petitions to rezone the property for greater height and density, and for related waivers. The abutters had petitioned the council to require a bigger majority before Mr. Korff could prevail, so we expect that Mr. Korff will return with a modified plan designed to nullify the abutters’ petition and make it easier to get council approval. Click here for Newton Tab coverage.
