The Zoning Board of Appeal yesterday approved plans to replace the shuttered 100% Delicias restaurant at Hyde Park Avenue and Canterbury Street in Roslindale with a four-story, 27-unit apartment building and a small ground-floor retail space.
Developer Antonio Ferrara's plans call for 5 units to be rented as affordable, rented to people making no more than 70% of the Boston area median income.
His proposal also calls for 14 parking spaces on the lot, which also includes a condemned house that will be torn down, and a roof deck.
Ferrara's attorney, John Pulgini, said the anticipated market for the building, which will have a mix of 1- and 2-bedroom units, is "younger empty nesters."
Before the Dominican restaurant, the site was home to the Maggie Mae's bar. At yesterday's hearing, Pulgini provided a land-use deep cut, noting that going back even further, the site was once home to the Eire Pub.
Nobody spoke against the proposal at the hearing.
The BPDA board approved the proposal in June.
