A project that could have brought six new units and a four-story building to G Street in South Boston is going back to the drawing board.
Niles Sutphin, who represented owner Cherly Cormier, before the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals Tuesday morning, said the project needs more community review and a redesign before it will be ready to go before the board for a number of zoning variances.
The project developers previously proposed erecting a four-story building to house six residential units at 2 G St. Currently a two-and-a-half-story single-family home is on the 3,000 square-foot lot, according to the city's Assessing Department. The wood-frame, single-family home would be demolished to make way for the new building.
Prior to the hearing Sutphin told Boston.com that the project is being scaled down to four units, two two-bedroom units and two three-bedroom duplexes with side decks. The project will also include parking for eight vehicles with two spaces per unit. Roof decks were proposed in the plan, but have since been eliminated.
The request for a delay was granted by the board and the project will go back before the board Mar. 12.
