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.

    These are not condo flippers. They are 2 young families trying to stay in southie. It’s too bad, really. At this rate, no families will be able to afford to raise their kids here. Please don’t take the bait.

      Southie stopped being about families a long time ago, about the same time these condos were sold to “young professionals”. Which is also when I had to take my son & leave the only neighborhood I ever lived in! I hope Mr. E 7th gets to keep his 23 inches ????
