The Zoning Board of Appeals yesterday approved a four-story condo building at 194 Havre St., next to the lot where the same family is currently building another four-story building - on a block where most of the other houses are two or three stories.
Joseph Fareta's proposed nine-unit building will replace a single-family house and will be four feet taller than the maximum allowed by the street's zoning.
The building will have eight parking spaces. Attorney Richard Lynds said the first eight buyers of units will get one of the spaces; the last will have to find parking elsewhere.
One neighbor, who bought his house just two months ago, spoke against the proposal, saying the building would be too high - "it's just going to hover above my house."
