Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for the owners of a six-unit building at 159-165 M Street. According to Universal Hub, the City of Boston Zoning Board of Appeals rejected plans by to add space to the back of their units. Neighboring residents complained that the expansion could potentially block their light and cut off their air.
According to the post on Universal Hub, one abutter who’s lives on E. 7th street for 30 years, said that building in question is already only 23 inches from his home and doesn’t need to come any closer. The abutter also went on to state that he “plans to live there until hie dies and will keep renting two units as affordable no matter what condo flippers do to try to ruin the neighborhood.” Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
The ZBA rejected the proposal without prejudice and the condo owners can submit a revised proposal.
