An LLC with a troubled history in Warren is proposing a large housing project just east of the Kickemuit River, a stone's throw south of Frerichs Farm, and received a not-so-warm welcome during a live-streamed meeting of the Warren Planning Commission Monday evening.
An attorney for Last Ever Realty LLC, which is controlled by the owner of Biszko Contracting in Fall River, introduced “Settler's Green,” a large housing project that would include a dozen single-family homes and two large apartment buildings. Those buildings, four stories tall each, would house a total of 108 apartment units, with space around them for 212 cars.
The project is being proposed under the Rhode Island Low And Moderate Income Housing Act, which allows developers to take advantage of tax credits and streamlined local approval processes as long as they designate 25 percent of the units for low to moderate income families.
