The Zoning Board of Appeal this week gave the Druker Co. another year to begin demolition of the former Shreve, Crump & Low building on Boylston Street at Arlington Street.
In a unanimous vote on Tuesday, the board agreed to extend zoning approvals that were set to expire on Dec. 2 for the company's proposal for a glass-sheathed retail and office building on the site, after a company attorney said Druker intends to start construction next year. In a filing with the BPDA, which also has to re-approve the project, the company says it hopes to begin 30 months of construction next fall.
Attorney Adam Hundley told the board that Druker, which initially won city approval in 2009, "struggled through the recession and the aftermath for awhile" but has finally lined up enough financing and tenants to begin the work.
