The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans to replace a three-story building at 472 West Broadway in Perkins Square with a five-story building with 16 smallish residential units, spaces for 11 cars in a garage using a three-tier stacking system, and ground-floor retail space.
The BPDA approved the project earlier this month.
The project by developers Charles McCarthy and Patrick McDevitt, falls under the city's "compact living" pilot, in which developers can build units smaller than normally required. In this building, that will mean 13 two-bedroom units of up to 847 square feet, one-bedroom units of 588 and 617 square feet and a studio with 430 square feet.
Nobody spoke against the proposal, which would go next to a larger building to replace the current Dunkin' Donuts on the corner.
