After nearly a year of committee meetings and public engagement to review and evaluate the proposed rezoning and use modifications to 10 Brookline Place, on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, the Brookline Select Board has accepted the 10 Brookline Place Committee’s recommendation to postpone indefinitely further committee work on this rezoning and new use proposal. In the absence of an imminent project and given the uncertainty of any redevelopment project timeline due to the long-term lease of 10 Brookline Place’s current tenant, the committee is unable to recommend Town Meeting actions at this time.

However, the Town of Brookline will continue to lay the groundwork for laboratory life science use in Brookline. These efforts will include establishing a public health and safety regulatory framework for life science laboratory operations, as well as zoning provisions allowing for research and development laboratory uses, which would limit Bioscience uses to Biosafety Levels 1 and 2, by special permit in appropriate major commercial corridors in Brookline.

The Town looks forward to the opportunity to build upon the foundation laid by the 10 Brookline Place Committee as Bulfinch’s redevelopment plans are refined in the future.
