J3 Design & Development proposes to construct a five-story, six-unit residential building. All units are three bedrooms and two duplex and four single-floor units are planned. The first floor is for parking and there is a common roof deck for all tenants. The property is in a multi-family residential subdistrict. Zoning violations arise under Article 32 of the Boston Zoning Code, Section 4 (Groundwater Conservation Overlay District Applicability) and Article 54, Section 18 (roof structure restrictions). With respect to the latter, the ISD refusal letter notes the height of the proposed new construction exceeds the prior height of an existing building, and Section 18 specifics the height of a building existing as of June 24, 1985. The refusal letter also notes that projections located above the public sidewalk will require approval from the Dept. of Public Works.
