The North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) voted 13-10 in support of a zoning request by 47 Charter Street owner Anne Dibenedetto (47 Charter St Realty Trust), represented by Attorney Daniel Toscano. Ms. Dibenedetto was born and raised in the North End and is married to Jose Duarte of Taranta Restaurant on Hanover Street.
The property owner has applied to the City to add 400 square feet of residential living space to her non-owner-occupied multi-family residential building. A bathroom and kitchen would be added but the number of units will remain the same. The first floor would also be raised to meet code.
View the video above for the complete presentation and discussion, held at the NEWRA meeting on April 9, 2015. The hearing date at the Zoning Board of Appeals is scheduled for May 5, 2015.
