A Zoning Board of Appeals hearing for a proposed development at 38-42 Hyde Park Ave. that was originally scheduled for earlier this month has been delayed until March 24 because of a snowstorm.
City Realty plans to turn 38-42 Hyde Park Ave. into a three-storey building with six residential units above a first-floor commercial space. There is currently a one-story building at the site, which used to be the home of Yang’s Martial Arts Association. It has been vacant since that business moved to Roslindale in November 2012.
City Realty stirred controversy in the neighborhood last year by attempting to evict tenants by means of massive rent hikes, including a popular local restaurant, in an Egleston Square building while simultaneously trying to develop the Hyde Park Avenue property.
