The empty corner at Strong Place and Kane Street will one day be home to three new townhouses designed by CWB Architects and marketed by Brennan Realty Services. On his website Donald Brennan posted details about each of the planned townhouses. The biggest of the lot, 2 Strong Place, at the corner of Kane, will be a one-family, 5,233-square-foot, four-and-a-half story home with five bedrooms. The house will also have a two-story detached carriage house with a garage and studio space. The second house, 4 Strong Place, will be a 4,090-square-foot, four-and-a-half story one-family home with five bedrooms. And 4A Strong Place is planned as a two-family weighing in at 4,090 square feet, with five bedrooms plus a one-bedroom rental at the garden level. All three will have outdoor space. The homes are currently in the permitting phase and haven’t yet been approved by the LPC. The application to LPC will be submitted in December, and construction is expected to begin in the spring.
