LEWISTON — L&L Estates, which asked the board to add four new lots to that subdivision off Old Greene Road, will bring it up to 15 single-family home lots.

Each new lot is 1.5 to 2.1 acres and brings the total acres developed to 43.

“They’re also looking ahead at some time in the future to Phase 4 and mentioned they weren’t sure how many lots, but there’s quite a bit of acreage available for some additional lots past where it goes right now,” Greene said. “It’s been a successful subdivision. It goes along with the search for buildable lots — everyone is looking and looking.”

The new lots require the 420-foot extension of Matobian Avenue, a $450,000 project that should be done by fall, according to Gotto.

December building permits for Lewiston also included:

• A $83,455 project at 29 Lowell St. for Central Maine Healthcare renovating a storage area and turning part of it into classrooms.

• A $175,000 renovation at 150 College St. for Roy Real Estate turning a residential garage/barn into two family residential units.

• Several projects for GF Investments replacing windows and a patio door in all units at 25 and 27 Marston St.

• A $200,000 foundation-only project for a new car wash at 449 Sabattus St. for Schillings Drive.

Greene said the car wash was approved in 2017 when the Nouria gas station was built on the site.

“The owners finally have decided to pull the trigger on developing that car wash and they were able to bring in plans before their type of approval expired — approvals like that are good for five years, so they came in in time to meet that deadline,” he said.
