If you happened to pass through Needham Center over the past two decades you may have noticed an old boarded up building on Great Plain Avenue that has been rotting away unused since 1985. The property has changed hands several times and there have been various proposals to redevelop the property that have met significant resistance. In 2011 this property was purchase by Franz Burke of Kingsbury Homes Limited and working in cooperation with the neighborhood and Needham Zoning Board of Appeals transformed it into Needham’s first Energy Star Tier 3 residence and one of the most energy efficient homes ever built in Eastern Massachusetts. Needham is well on its way to becoming a green community and this property will hopefully serve as an example of responsible real estate development of the future.
