Watertown planning officials have received site review applications from developers proposing two mixed-use condominium complexes that would add nearly 100 residential units to the town’s housing supply.

Both complexes would feature mainly one- and two-bedroom units, but town officials have asked the developers to incorporate some three-bedroom units, Magoon said.

The Planning Board would schedule a hearing once the developers file formal applications, he said.
