The Zoning Board of Appeal today rejected a developer's proposal for a six-unit apartment building on Yuil Circle, a small circular street off Neponset Valley Parkway in Readville's Wolcott Square.
George Morancy, attorney for the developer, said the building would fit in well; he said the building was right near Neponset Valley Parkway and an existing seven-unit apartment building.
But board members unanimously disagreed. The proposed building wouldn't be on the parkway itself and "this is really going to stick out like a sore thumb," board member Mark Ehrlich said.
City Councilor Ricardo Arroyo supported the proposal. Readville resident Craig Martin, though, called the proposal "an insult to the neighborhood." The BPDA urged rejection as well.
