The Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council (JPNC) Zoning Committee approved a proposal at 18 Malcolm Rd. to create an addition and add living space in the basement at its June 22 meeting.
Architect Anat Beck-Nachtigal explained that the addition would be created on the second floor above the existing sunroom in the rear of the building. The deck would be removed to create a master bedroom. The basement will also be renovated, without changing the foot-print, to include a bathroom, a rec room, and a “man cave” space. She said that the basement area is about 730 square feet of space, and about 140 square feet will be added to the second floor for the addition.
Part of the basement area will also be kept as storage, Beck-Nachtiga said.
No neighbors came to speak either in favor or against this proposal.
The committee voted to approve the project as submitted
