Universal Hub is reporting that the City of Boston Zoning Board of Appeal approved a proposal to build a 5-story development with nine apartments and commercial space on the ground level on Allstate Road across from the South Bay mall. Evidently, this lot was an old junkyard.
There are no “affordable units” in the proposal but the developer has a larger development close by at Willow and Baker courts which will have 26 affordable units out of 99.
City councilors Frank Baker, Erin Murphy, and Michael Flaherty, Sen. Nick Collins, the Newmarket Business Improvement District and the McCormack Civic Association supported the proposal.
