FOREST HILLS—Bicon Dental Implants, a 501 Arborway business, is planning to demolish a 19th century house at 21 Yale Terrace and replacing it with a parking garage and townhouses, according to documents filed with the Boston Landmarks Commission (BLC).
The house at 21 Yale Terrace abuts Bicon’s business.
The project was slated to go before the BLC on the night of Jan. 13 for an Article 85 review, after the Gazette deadline. Article 85 of the zoning code requires an automatic delay of 90 days in issuing a demolition permit for a building more than 50 years of age while the BLC reviews possible historic preservation. The developer is free to obtain demolition permits after the 90 days expire.
Bicon did not respond to a request for comment.
According to City tax records, it appears that Bicon recently bought the house from Berta Berriz. Berriz could not immediately be reached for comment.
The Gazette was first alerted to the project by Yale Terrace resident Kosta Demos, who called the proposal “breathtakingly horrific.”
Bicon has a history of controversial expansions and operations that have drawn neighborhood complaints, City citations and City Council hearings, dating back to a 2006 attempt to create a restaurant on the second floor of its office building.
