A residential project proposed for Washington Street in Dorchester is moving forward after it was approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s Board Thursday night.

The Four Corners/Upper Washington project proposes constructing two buildings, one at 324 Washington St. and one at 331 Washington St., to house 35 residential units and 3,200-square-feet of commercial space.

Being led by Viet-AID, a Fields Corner-based community development agency, four of the units will be one-bedrooms, 21 will be two-bedrooms, and 10 will be three-bedrooms, according to a Project Notification Form filed with the BRA.

Nine of the overall units will be set aside for extremely low-income homeless or formerly homeless families, with the remaining units dedicated to affordable housing with tax credit restrictions.

Both of the buildings, which will face each other, include ground-floor retail and community programming space. Plans call for a four-story building at 324 Washington St. and a three-story building at 331 Washington St.

The project will also include 15 parking spaces at 331 Washington St. and 10 spaces at 324 Washington St.

Overall 10 separate parcels will be used for the project, with a total project area of approximately 30,400-square-feet.

The project must now receive the approval of the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals. A ZBA hearing date has yet to be set, according to the BRA.
