The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a five-story, 56-unit apartment building on what is now a vacant lot at 1970 Dorchester Ave., next to the Ashmont Red Line station.
Developer Tim Long's building, which will have 32 studios and 24 one-bedroom units, will have 56 bike spaces but just five parking spaces. Under an agreement with the BPDA, which approved the project earlier this month, residents of the building will not be allowed to get Dorchester residential parking permits.
The studios will range in size from 450 to 629 square feet; the one-bedroom units between 625 and 755 square feet. The building will have ground-floor commercial space, a gym/media room and a roof deck.
Nobody spoke against the proposal at the hearing.
