The Board of Appeals this week approved a developer's plans for a 211-unit apartment building on Soldiers Field Road near where Western Avenue and Birmingham Parkway and a separate building with 38 affordable condos.
Dinosaur Capital Partners of the Back Bay will also work with DCR to develop a new pedestrian and bike path along what is now a strip of older commercial buildings and auto dealerships.
The apartment building, which would front Soldiers Field Road, would have 149 parking spaces for its market-rate units. The condo building, to be built behind that, would have 27 parking spaces - and deed restrictions in which half the units could not be sold to people making more than 80% of the Boston area median income and the other half to people making no more than 100% of that.
The BPDA approved the proposal in May.
