Dr. Simcha Weller, manager of 180 Endicott Street LLC, has appealed the City to “change occupancy from three to four apartments, not adding any additional floor area nor increasing the number of bedrooms.” The building is being renovated with an update of all systems and the requested variance is required to separate the third and fourth floors with an installation of a bathroom on the third floor.
After hearing the application, North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) voted 10-0 in support of the request. View the above video for more details, including statements by the owner (near the end) that the units will not be used for short-term rentals (i.e., AirBnb).
