Last spring a developer began the first steps to turn the historic 1615 Beacon St property in Waban Square into a 40B housing development.

Months of wrestling and wrangling with the neighborhood, Newton’s ZBA, the city and state Historic Commissions, and the Mass Housing Partnershio have come to an end.

Rather than go forward with the 40B development, the property has been sold to the Suzuki Music School and it will become their permanent home.  They’ll leave the historic building intact – renovating the inside but leaving the exterior as it is.
