The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a four-story, 24-unit apartment building on Burney Street on Mission Hill that will include creation of a 2,400-square foot, brick-lined "laneway" on which restaurants along neighboring Tremont Street will be allowed to create outdoor patio seating.
As approved by the BPDA last year, New Urban Partners' building aat 9-11 Burney St. will bar students from renting any of the apartments - and tenants will not be eligible for neighborhood parking permits. The building will have five parking spaces.
The building was designed for the city's compact living pilot, the goal of which is to create units with less than astronomical rents in exchange for units smaller than typically allowed under Boston zoning.
To make up for the reduced in-unit space, the building will have a common dining area, roof deck, a lounge and media room, a conference room, a gym, a library, and a kitchen.
