The City’s Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) during an April 25 hearing approved the variances for the 25 Amory St. project, according to Inspectional Services Department (ISD) spokesperson Lisa Timberlake. ISD oversees the ZBA.
The property at 25 Amory St. will be one of two buildings developed along the northern portion of Site III, which is part of the Jackson Square redevelopment. The Boston Redevelopment Authority, which is now the Boston Planning and Development Agency, approved the project last summer.
The 25 Amory St. building will have 44 residential units, all to house family-sized households with a maximum of 60 percent area median income (AMI). There will be a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, 16 of which will be supported by project-based vouchers, and two of which will be fully accessible for the sensory impaired. The building will be wood-framed and four stories high with residential parking for bicycles and 22 vehicles.
