DEVIL IN THE DETAILS: If you build it, they will scrutinize the details in Wellesley. Thatís one lesson learned by the developer who took on the renovation of the historic Walnut Street Firehouse.
In December 2004, town meeting approved the sale of the 1903 brick firehouse for one dollar to New Boston Ventures to create three condominiums-Ėone of which is designated as affordable.
Although the lottery was held last year for the affordable unit and potential buyers have been scrutinizing the retail units for months, heavy equipment has been back on the property in recent days to stop a leak in into the basement and to comply with details of the landscaping approved by the town.
Wellesley Housing Development Corporation member Bradley Boyd, who is also a neighbor abutting the firehouse, says the project should be able to win approval soon.
