The red-hot South Boston housing market showed signs of chafing today when a divided Zoning Board of Appeals today approved a controversial residential project despite opposition from not only residents of a neighboring building but Mayor Walsh, City Councilor Bill Linehan and state Sen. Linda Dorcena Forry.

The four-story, 45-foot-high building at 340 W. 2 St. will include 29 residential units, 43 parking spaces - 12 of them into which a car elevator will put the vehicles - and first-floor commercial space. Of the 29 units, 18 will have one bedroom, the remaining 11 two bedrooms.
