The BRA board of directors today approved a six-story esidential building with 81 units on Dorchester Avenue, across from the Carruth and the Ashmont T station.
The building, which will also have ground-level retail space, will have 53 units marketed as affordable on what is now the home of Ashmont Tire, under plans by developer Trinity Financial. The project will have 44 parking spaces and storage space for 81 bicycles.
The Project will improve the urban design characteristics of the area by constructing a human-scaled, transit-oriented building along Dorchester Avenue and transforming the use of an uninviting cinder-block structure on a commercial site.
The project also needs approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals.
