A plan by DAI Property Management to construct a six-story condominium with 50 units on Weymouth Neck is being called a sound proposal by an attorney, but some residents fear the project will stir up buried contaminants at the site.

“It is a modest size building,” said Frank Marinelli, a Braintree attorney, during a North Weymouth Civic Association meeting Monday. “That modest size building complies with every dimension and density requirements in the zoning bylaws. There is no need for any variance for this building.”

The six-story Seascape of Weymouth will require the board of zoning appeals to approve a Special Permit for the project because the town has a four-foot cap on structures.

“We don’t think it will be an overstatement to say that it will be the most attractive and newest building in 30 plus years on Weymouth Neck,” Marinelli said. “It has been carefully located at the northern end of the parcel.”

Marinelli said Seascape of Weymouth will occupy 13,894 square feet and be similar in size to its neighbor, Essex Bay condos.

“It is an investment of over $25 million and it will produce over $250,000 in net tax revenue, plus building permit fees of $125,000 or more,” Marinelli said.
