The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a proposal by Urban Edge Housing Corp. for a six-story apartment building in which all the units would be rented as affordable, at 1599 Columbus Ave., just south of Centre Street.
The building, which would have 21 parking spaces, would replace two commercial buildings, one vacant, and a parking lot. The proposal calls for 4,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor.
Urban Edge says it hopes to begin construction in about a year, after it finishes obtaining financing.
The BPDA approved the project last monht.
