The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans to add two apartments atop a storefront at 3514 Washington St., at one end of the building that now houses JP Kitchen and a former Harley-Davidson store.
Omer Hecht's proposal is for the commercial condo that now houses CATLabs, which recently moved its analog film and camera business there from Roslindale. Hecht's architect, Timothy Burke, told the board that the owners of the other three storefronts in the building had expressed interest in adding residences atop their units if the board approved Hecht's plan.
The two apartments will have their own roof decks overlooking the English High field as well as use of two parking spaces behind the shop.
Although the building is zoned for industrial use, Burke noted there is a house right next door to the building. He also pointed to the proposed redevelopment of the former Doyle's, which would include condos.
Nobody spoke in opposition to the proposal.
