More redevelopment planned for Nashua's Amherst Street
NASHUA — Several new development projects are about to take shape on Amherst Street, including the proposed construction of a new car wash, oil and lube shop, grocery store and retail center.
This week, city planners will review preliminary plans for each of the renovation projects, which will take place at 635, 647 and 270 Amherst St.
Now, several months later, Key Auto Group is returning to the board asking for a conditional use permit to allow a 6,670 square feet vehicle service center and car wash to operate on the parcel.
The site has been used for vehicle sales and repair for almost 40 years, according to Linda Panny, a city planner. In a memo to the planning board, Panny said the property once operated Demers Truck Sales and Service, and more recently a Saturn car dealership.
The contaminated parcel that once housed Nashua Motor Express is being proposed for a 40,000 square feet retail center with a grocery store, which includes four potential storefronts with undisclosed tenants. A separate, 4,500-square-feet pizzeria restaurant — Papa Gino’s, which closed a few months ago just across the street — is also being suggested for the property.
