Public Meeting for Proposed 46-Unit Brookley Road Apartment Building on Oct. 24

A proposed 4-story, 46-unit rental apartment building for Brookley Road will be discussed at a public meeting on Oct. 24. The building is proposed for the corner of Brookley and Stonley roads, with a listed address of 35 Brookley Road. All of the building's units would be rentals, with three of them being artist live/work units, according to the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA). There would be at-grade parking for 21 vehicles, and onsite storage for 52 bicycles.


Stonley Road Proposal Updated, Will Seek Several Zoning Variances

The Boston Planning & Development Agency Board of Directors is expected to recommend this week that a proposed four-story residential building on Stonley Road -- which has been modified based on feedback from neighborhood associations and residents -- should receive a number of zoning variances. The current proposal for the site is a 4-story, 28-unit rental residential building situated on 30,720 square feet with 23 below-grade parking spaces. On Thursday, Nov. 17, the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA, formerly the Boston Redevelopment Authority) Board of Directors will request the authorization of a certification of approval in accordance with Article 80E, which is required for this project. The board is also expected to recommend that the Zoning Board of Appeals approve several zoning relief variances because, as proposed, the current amount of off-street parking and the rear yard size are insufficient for a project of this size, the site is not zoned for multifamily usage, and the building height exceeds current zoning guidelines.
