Boston’s Board of Appeal approved the zoning relief to make smaller apartments at 16 Hull Street increasing the number of units from 5 to 8 in the building owned by Peter McGiniss. The apartment square footages will be approximately 525 sf for the 1-bedroom units and 628 sf for the 2 bedrooms up to 1061 sf for the largest unit. In order to meet zoning requirements for parking, he has also rented 3 parking spots from local garages to account for the 3 extra units. The BoA decision is shown below.
The decision goes counter to the vote at the North End/Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA).
