7 Baldwin Place, Anthony Bova
 has filed an appeal for zoning relief to change the legal occupancy of the building from 5 residential apartments to 6 residential apartments, adding a one story addition to the building, not to exceed 55 feet.  The project was presented by the owner at the May 29 ZLC Committee meeting. Two concerns were raised for which the ZLC Committee requested resolution and additional information: 1) the ISD refusal letter indicates a violation of the 55-foot height limit in the North End, yet the owner’s intent is to construct to a height no higher than 55 feet, and 2) concern was raised by an abutter on Noyes Place and by Committee members regarding light and air impacts to abutting properties.
