The Board of Appeals today approved plans to replace the old Martignetti liquor store on Soldiers Field Road with a Maserati and Alfa Romeo dealership.
Fiat Chrysler of America is still in negottions with the BPDA and the city Parks Department on exactly what sort of trees and other greenery to be planted to buffer the site, which sits in a city "green belt district."
Fiat Chrysler's attorney, Stephen Miller, said that the car dealership will be "a far less intense use than a liquor store," especially during the December holiday season and in the summer. He added the new dealership will have just two curb cuts.
The mayor's office and City Councilor Mark Ciommo (Allston/Brighton) supported the proposal. Nobody spoke against it.
