Neighbors Praise Big McBride Street Project, Push For More Affordable Units

A project for 132 residential units with retail and a four-story self storage facility at Washington and McBride took a step forward Monday. Neighbors have pushed for and gotten key changes to the design. The development at the former Flanagan & Seaton Motor Car Co. has been in the works since 2010, when it looked quite different from the proposal floated Monday to neighbors during a meeting at English High School. Instead of parking out front along Washington, the project now hides the parking in and under a central lot.
