A new $12 million residential development proposal has been approved by by the City of Boston Zoning Board of Appeals. According to Universal Hub, the project for 1970 Dorchester Avenue was approved on Tuesday. No one at the hearing was against the project.
South Boston-based real estate developer Tim Long proposed a 56-unit apartment complex on a vacant site on Dot Ave. with room for commercial spaces on ground level.
The breakdown: The 56 units consist of 32 studios and 24 one-bedroom units. There will be a roof deck, space for 56 bikes, and a gym. There will be ONLY 5 parking spots. Under an agreement with the Boston Planning and Development Agency, residents of the building will not be allowed to get Dorchester residential parking permits.
Construction is expected to start later this year and take about two years to complete.
