The location of 8-12 Carpenter St.

A new development on Carpenter Street in South Boston received a thorough vetting Wednesday night at the Andrew Square Civic Association’s monthly meeting.

Tim Johnson, the project’s architect, presented the condominium development to the group of nearly 25 residents.

The project, proposed to be located at 8-12 Carpenter St., which is owned by Malcolm Barber, would demolish the existing two-family house and combine its lot with two other adjacent lots to create a 5,520 square-foot lot.

A three-story, 33-foot building would be built on the three lots and house six-units; four two-bedroom units and two three-bedroom units.

A six-car parking lot would also be constructed adjacent to the building and a space would be deeded to each unit.

There will be two roof decks that will only be accessible to the top floor units and they will be recessed and centered on the roof.

There will also be rear decks that extend within three-and-a-half-feet of the property line.

Some at the meeting seemed supportive of the project with two members voting in support, one in opposition and the majority of members abstaining.

Concerns were raised about the building being so close to the property line. Johnson said he is willing to work with residents to find a solution.

The 8-12 Carpenters St. project will appear before the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals Oct. 23 for a number of variances including excessive Floor Area Ratio, setbacks and height violations.

Domino’s Pizza seeks 3 a.m. delivery license

Bill Mohan, a consult for Jeff Dufficy owner of the Old Colony Domino’s Pizza, was also before the resident group Wednesday night seeking residents' support of an extension of the hours for the restaurant’s delivery license.

Currently Domino’s, located at 163 Old Colony Ave., is open till 1 a.m. for delivery and walk-in service. Mohan, representing Dufficy who owns 15 Domino’s franchises throughout Metro Boston, said the restaurant would like to extend its delivery hours till 3 a.m. to better serve the neighborhood and surrounding communities.

Currently all orders taken after 1 a.m. are delivered out of Dufficy’s Dorchester, Mission Hill or Fenway locations.

Mohan said that along with better service the extension of hours could bring up to 10 full-time jobs to the neighborhood.

Residents however were not in support, with many citing concerns for driver safety, added noise and the precedent it could set for other area restaurants.

The association voted unanimously to oppose the extension of hours.

Mohan will appear before the city’s Licensing Board Oct. 24 seeking the extension.
