Denholtz Associates, which has approvals for a multiuse project called the Rail now under construction between Chestnut and Oakland streets adjoining the train station, is seeking planning board approval to change the plan as it pertains to the facade and clock tower of 116-120 Chestnut Street.
The clock tower, which contains an elevator and a stairway, would be replaced by a translucent-skinned box lit from inside. No interior changes are proposed.
The proposal is slated to go before the planning board on March 4 at 7 p.m.
