Local offices might come to 75 St. Alphonsus St. if a City Zoning Board of Appeals filing is approved.
Developer Louis Miller intends to convert living space on the first floor of the multi-story apartment tower into space for five local offices, he told the Gazette. It is unclear whether the would-be affected units are currently occupied.
The offices would likely be medical or law offices, he said.
The application filed with the City’s Inspectional Services Department (ISD) list the scope of the project as “new ceiling tiles, flooring, painting…and other related works.” No changes would be made to the footprint or exterior of the building, Miller said.
Miller’s filing with the ZBA would also confirm two other uses of the building. A fitness center that has been on site for “20, 30 years, I’m not sure,” according to Miller, and meeting space in the building’s basement would be confirmed as valid uses of the property.
The Community Alliance of Mission Hill voted to support Miller’s proposal at its Nov. 7 meeting.
Miller is expecting to go before the ZBA later this month.
