Housing Watch: 48 Units of Housing Proposed for Old Factory Building in Downtown Peabody


The owners of an old chemical factory building at the corner of Howley and Walnut streets want to convert the brick, three-story structure into housing. And they say, this is in line with the city's vision for downtown Peabody. 

Attorney Jack Keilty, who represents the Flomp family, said the goal is to keep the existing building at 26 Howley Street, but turn it into as many as 48 apartments or condos. This would be accomplished by rezoning two parcels from a general business district to a business central district, which would allow housing by special permit from the City Council.
