@ L and East Fourth Street
The City of Boston Zoning Board of Appeals approved a proposal for the conversion of the gas station at the corner of L and East Fourth Street into a convenience store and Dunkin Donuts.
According to boston.com, the gas station is owned by Russell Castagna, but the Dunkin’ Donuts would be owned and operated by John Gillespie – who also owns other Dunkin Donuts in the neighborhood. There will be customer parking on the property. The project still needs to go before the Boston Licensing Board.
The project received support from the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, the office of at-Large City Councilor Stephen Murphy, City Councilor Bill Linehan, and from Representative Nick Collins.
A community meeting was held in October with over 30 people in attendance to discuss the project. It received support from the neighborhood and only two oppositions.
The project is slated for a spring opening.
