PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Portland’s Historic Preservation Board is seeking to nix a developer’s plan to build up to 12 townhouses on top of two historic buildings.

The proposal is a part of CPB2’s $10 million project that aims to transform the former Portland Co. complex on the city’s eastern waterfront.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2hl8G1J ) the board has recommended that the plan to build the townhouses along Fore Street be eliminated in order to preserve public views of the former railroad foundry.

James Brady, a principal with CPB2, says he believes that view corridors are already included in the plan, including a 50-foot corridor in the middle of the site.

He says he hopes that both the historic board and the Planning Board will be open to future discussions about the units.
