BOSTON-Ten acres of land owned by the state here in the neighborhood of Brookline have become available, providing this area with its first opportunity in years for significant development.

The state’s Capital Asset Management division, which manages real estate and construction, contacted state agencies were regarding the land, but reportedly they have not expressed interest in it. Brookline is next in line and according to Polly Selekoe, chief planner for the town, the town sent a letter indicating its interest in the site. The land is adjacent to a five-acre site owned by the town opening up the possibility of a 15-acre development.

“The town has not decided what to do with the site yet,” Selekoe tells GlobeSt.com. “Everything is done by committee here so we will study our options and then decide.” The town’s options include open space, recreation, or affordable housing but it has not yet created a master plan, which the state has requested. The deadline to submit those plans expire soon but the town has already filed for a six-month extension.
