The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a two-wing complex with 151 apartments and 102 condos at 1515-1525 Commonwealth Ave., just up the hill from Warren Street.
The Davis Companies proposal includes eight live/work apartments for artists - who will get space in a shared art studio in the complex.
Some 25 apartments and 14 condos will be rented or sold as affordable, with the apartments rented to people making between 70% and 120% of the Boston area median income and the condos sold to people making between 80% and 100% of that level. The company will also pay $600,000 towards two units in a separate development on Quint Avenue.
The development, built on what was once a quarry, will have parking for 100 cars for condo owners and 60 cars for apartment renters.
