A property owner’s plans to build 17 townhouse-style condominiums on Quincy Avenue is scheduled to go before two city boards next week.

Anthony Agnitti and his brother, Lawrence, have proposed knocking down the three-family home at 150 Quincy Ave. and the two-family home next door at 154 Quincy Ave. to make room for five three-story buildings holding the townhouses.

The development, which would be named Faxon Edge, is expected to be considered by Quincy’s zoning board of appeals Tuesday night and by the planning board Wednesday night. Both meetings – zoning starting at 7:15 p.m. and planning starting at 7 p.m. – will be held inside Old City Hall at 1305 Hancock St.

The project site is across from the intersection of Quincy Avenue and Faxon Park Road, one property down from Olindy’s bowling alley. The Agnitti brothers own several properties in Quincy, including an apartment complex at 28 Wollaston Ave. and an office building at 21 Franklin St.

At a public meeting held in January to discuss the proposal, neighbors voiced concerns about the development’s impact on traffic, parking and drainage.

The project requires dimensional variances from the zoning board of appeals as well as site-plan approval and a special permit for a parking-requirement waiver from the planning board.
