BRAINTREE – Plans for a condominium development on Adams Street have been revised, reducing the number of units in the proposal from 142 to 117.

Brian Palmucci, a lawyer representing developer George Lang of Braintree, said one of the two multi-unit buildings has been eliminated from the proposal with a couple of townhouse units added.

The development, Riverside at Adams, would be built on the 16-acre Graziano Concrete property at 71 Adams St.

Palmucci said the changes were made in response to comments at a community meeting on the development back in November.

“We heard at the last meeting that density is an issue and the related traffic,” Palmucci said. “The reason we’re having a second meeting is to make the project better.”

The developer held a community open house to show the changes in the plans in the East Middle School cafeteria Tuesday night. Residents were able to chat informally with consultants working on the development.

All of the units in the development would be two-bedrooms, and it would have a tennis court and a public walkway along the Monatiquot River.
