MARLBOROUGH – The old Armory at 358 Lincoln St. – long empty and long considered a neighborhood eyesore – could be converted into 17 residential units if the city approves a special permit.

“I advocate for a transformative project,” said George Voyiatzis, the permit’s applicant, in a public hearing before the City Council on Aug. 21. “We can transform this space.”

According to Brian Falk, the attorney for the Armory at French Hill project, the site would include 14 two-bedroom units, two two-bedroom units and one three-bedroom unit.

Voyiatzis and his wife would occupy the three-bedroom unit.

The site would be 100% electric, said Falk, and it has received approval from the state’s Historical Commission.

Voyiatzis said the project would “breathe new life” into the neighborhood.

Several residents who attended the public hearing supported the plans.

Robert Kays said he has known Voyiatzis for about 20 years, and “he’s an asset to the community.”
