ZBA Approves Condor St. Development

Last week the Boston  Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) approved the project pitched for 101 Condor St. in Eagle Hill.

The proposed project, which received Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) approval last month, consists of the re-development of a 8,650 square-foot commercial site situated on the corner of Condor and Brooks St.

The site was used by Corner Stalk Farms. Corner Stalk plans to move to the Chelsea Creek side of Condor St. because the company, that grows fresh produce in converted industrial shipping containers, outgrew its current location.

The developer plans to construct a new four story building containing 18 residential units and 18 off-street parking spaces located in the building’s below-grade garage. The project also includes two income-restricted units.

According to the developer’s attorney the project would create a residential development combining market-rate and affordable housing opportunities

The four-story building will have roof decks and a more modern facade with wood accents to match the somewhat industrial look of the building across the street along the Chelsea Creek.

Recently the Eagle Hill Civic Association (EHCA) voted 23 to 9 in support of the project at 101 Condor St. The developer has also agreed to contribute $20,000 to the City of Boston’s Parks Department to invest in Eagle Hill’s Prescott Park.
