The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a 126-unit apartment building at 282-302 Bremen St., at Brooks Street, that will include 13 live/work studios for artists and 5 three-bedroom apartments aimed at families making no more than 60% of the Boston area median income.
In total, 20% of the units will be rented to people making no more than 60% of the Boston area median income, under the plans submitted by Transom Real Estate of the South End. The city currently requires only 13% of units be rented as affordable.
The building will have a 61-space garage.
The BPDA approved the proposal, across the street from the Bremen Stret park, last month.
The mayor's office and the office of City Councilor Lydia Edwards supported the project.
