Caption
This hole in the ground at Maynard and William is part of the site of the city's tallest building, a 26-story apartment-commercial building to be constructed by the William Street Co. The City Council has approved issuance of a building permit, setting aside for this project its 18-story height limitation ordinance. Work on a commercial wing (bottom) is going on to allow dry cleaning establishment and a small restaurant to move as soon as possible from William St. buildings (upper right) which are to be razed along with others (not pictured), as additional construction space. The high-rise building will contain 300 efficiencies and one-bedroom living units aboe the ground floor, with average population of 1 1/2 persons per unit. The building will have a 25-foot-wide pedestrian walkway running the entire length of the Maynard St. frontage (left). A total of four commercial spaces will form the commercial wing on Maynard St., which will be an integral part of the 26-story building.
