76-unit condo building approved on North Beacon Street in Brighton

Rendering of proposed 10 Hichborn St.

Rendering by Embarc.

The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans for a six-story, 76-unit condo building on Hichborn Street at North Beacon Street in Brighton, the latest residential building proposed by New Balance to go along with its redevelopment of the Guest Street corridor.

The proposed building would replace a vacant commercial building and parking lot and would be a short walk to the Boston Landing commuter-rail stop.

Some 13 of the units, or 17%, would be sold as affordable, New Balance's attorney, John Pulgini, said.

The building would have 45 parking spaces and ground-floor retail space.

Pulgini said the building would improve the streetscape through the planting of seven street trees, wider sidewalks, and the reduction of the width of its curb cut from 100 to 12 feet.

The BPDA approved the proposal in December. The project needed zoning-board approval in part because the land is zoned for industrial use.

Nobody spoke against the idea.
