Mattapan-based Economy Plumbing and Heating Supply is progressing with plans to expand at its 4.7-acre Morton Street location.
Owned by five brothers, the company’s proposal to add a nearly 73,000-square-foot single-story steel framed structure to southern side of the property's existing warehouse, was approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s Board Thursday night.
The $2-million project still has to receive a number of approvals, including the blessing of the Boston Zoning Board of Appeals, before any shovels hit the ground, Claudio Poles, one of the co-owners, told Boston.com Friday.
The proposed building would be located on the rear of the property away from Morton Street.
The Poles have owned the property at 875 Morton St. since 2002. The parcel the new warehouse will be built on was previously owned by the Concord Baptist Church and was purchased by Economy in the spring of 2011.
Poles estimated that the structure will take 18-months to complete and once constructed will generate approximately 30 local jobs over the next five-years.
