Developers of the proposed 3,000-square-foot, two-story structure at 398 East 8th St. withdrew their request for zoning variances Tuesday at the Zoning Board of Appeals hearing.

The move came after Dorchester Heights residents had raised concerns about density and loss of green space. Plans called for the residential building behind an existing two-family home on the 8,000 square-foot lot.

"We are withdrawing our proposal in response to recent neighborhood issues," said Matt Capone one of the developers on the project.

The ZBA accepted the projects withdrawal with a unanimous vote.

Representatives for Enda Madigan, the owner of the property, said they hope to go back to the community to discuss the project.
