 After discussion, the board approved, 4-0, the special permit to convert 455-457 Mass. Ave. (at Medford Street) to mixed use, by adding residential on the second floor.

The board discussed two concept plans for 833 Mass. Ave., the Atwood House, a deteriorated building of historic significance next to a CVS on Mass. Ave., and voted to continue the discussion Dec. 6.

The Chase Bank application to put a branch office at 645 Mass Ave., requested to be withdrawn without prejudice, was postponed to Nov. 1 in a 3-0 vote.
