WEYMOUTH – A Mashpee developer has signed on to build a 55-and-older living complex at Union Point, becoming the second retirement community planned at the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station.

 

Bonvie Homes on Friday announced a deal to build Four Winds at Union Point, a residential development with 500 age-restricted, market-rate homes. The development will include a mix of townhouses, single-family homes and condominium units.

LStar Communities is the master developer for Union Point, the property formerly called SouthField. Kyle Corkum, managing partner of LStar Communities, said in a statement that the Weymouth Town Council has pushed for an increase in age-restricted units as a way to boost tax revenue without burdening local schools.

Last week, tenants started moving into Fairing Way, a Union Point development with 104 apartments for people 55 and older and a 46-bed nursing home. Construction will begin next year on a second building with 107 units.

Construction projects are starting to ramp up on the 1,400-acre former base that includes land in Weymouth, Rockland and Abington since all three towns approved new zoning to allow denser development. So far, development is focused on the Weymouth portion of the Union Point site.

Mayor Robert Hedlund said he was representing the town in the state Senate when the closure of the base was first announced, so it’s satisfying to see redevelopment plans taking shape.

“It’s been a long process to get us where we’re at, and I’m at a point where I have some confidence that we’ll see benefit to the community,” he said.

Hedlund said the announcement of 500 new units also reinforces the need for the town and LStar to address some infrastructure issues regarding water, sewer and transportation. He said he had a lengthy meeting with the developer on Thursday afternoon.
