The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans for a 21-unit, three-story apartment building at 50 Stedman St., which its developer is counting on becoming the gateway to transforming the area from garages and truck lots into a completely new residential area within an easy walk of the Forest Hills T stop.
Helms Investment of South Boston had received BPDA approval for the project, which will include four affordable apartments, in February. Some 15 of the units in the building, which will replace a garage, will have two bedrooms, the rest one. The building will have 21 parking spaces and a roof deck for residents from which they can watch bus drivers maneuvering at the neighboring Arborway depot.
