The proposed nine-unit condominium building at the corner of Parker and Allegany Streets was denied without prejudice by the zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) on Aug. 7. Steenbrugge can now either abandon the project or file again with the ZBA.
Jan Steenbrugge, owner of the lot, was seeking 13 zoning code variances from the City. The plan would have separated a parking lot from 775 Parker St. and created a new address, 30 Alleghany St., for the building. The variances that were sought were nonconforming use, insufficient off-street parking, dimensional regulations and forbidden use.
The Community Alliance of Mission Hill (CAMH) voted during a July meeting to oppose the project. The vote (52 opposed, 5 approved and 1 undecided) was non-binding, but the City takes it into consideration.
