SCARBOROUGH — A six-acre parcel by the Interstate 295 connector is under contract again.

The broker, Chris Paszyc of CBRE/The Boulos Co., said he could not identify the would-be buyer. Paszyc said he believes the party does not plan to propose rezoning the property.

The Maine Department of Transportation property had been eyed for rezoning by a medical practice last year. The proposal to build a 40,000-square-foot facility prompted concerns from residents of the Green Acres neighborhood, which sees the wooded property as an important buffer between it and the traffic on the connector and Route 1. 

The Town Council decided against making the property part of the Business Office-Research District, which lies on the opposite side of Route 1 and includes the Maine Medical Center campus.

The current residential zoning also allows other uses besides homes. Those include places of worship, schools, museums, golf courses, day-care facilities and farm stands.

The Save Green Acres neighborhood group is looking into ways to prevent the commercial development of the property, including having it turned into conservation land.
