Appeals Court Confirms That a Government Building Has the Status of a Pre-Existing Nonconforming Structure When Transferred to a Private Party
Practice: Litigation, Real Estate, Real Estate Litigation
PDFIn Gund, et al. v. Planning Board of Cambridge, et al., No. 15-P-1339 (Mass. App. Ct. July 19, 2017), neighbors of the former Sullivan Courthouse in Cambridge challenged special permits granted by the Cambridge Planning Board to a developer to convert the Courthouse into a 20-story mixed-use building.[1]  As a governmental building, the Courthouse was not subject to zoning laws when built due to the principle of sovereign immunity.  The Planning Board authorized the conversion of the Courthouse by the private developer based upon the view that the Courthouse would be entitled to statutory protections as a pre-existing nonconforming structure after being sold by the government to the private developer.  The Land Court upheld the Planning Board’s decision on summary judgment, holding that the Courthouse is entitled to the protections of a pre-existing nonconforming structure under M.G.L. c. 40A, Section 6 after sovereign immunity ends.
 
[1] The developer was represented by Kevin O’Flaherty and Mariana Korsunsky of Goulston & Storrs PC.
