A builder putting up what was originally billed as a 13-unit, three-story residential building on Spring Street in West Roxbury is now seeking BPDA permission to add five more units to the nearly complete structure.
At 13 units, the building at 45 Spring St., in front of the Star Market, did not require BPDA review. But the extra units would push LaRosa Development's project over the 15-unit minimum for required BPDA oversight. LaRosa, based in Norwood, is also seeking to add an extra ground-floor storefront.
Unusual for new construction these days, the expanded building, if approved, will have 17 three-bedroom units and one two-bedroom unit. LaRosa says it will provide a total of 30 parking spaces.
Even with the extra units, the building will not need zoning-board approval.
