Two projects in South Boston that would potentially bring six residential units each to the neighborhood were put on hold by the developers at Zoning Board of Appeals hearings Tuesday morning.

The first project, at 141-143 West 6th St., would raze the two structures on the property and in their place construct a three-plus-story building for six-units, said Niles Sutphin, the project architect.

The units would be two-bedroom, two-bath condos. No parking would be included in the project.

The deferral on the ZBA’s decision was requested by Sutphin, and a new hearing date was set for April 9.

Another project, located at 9 M St., was also deferred by the ZBA, as requested by Sutphin.

The M Street project includes six condominium units in a three-story building on a vacant lot. The units would be two-bedroom, two-bath units. Six on-site parking spaces are planned.

Sutphin said he requested the delay because of a question on the definitions of “open space” in the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s new zoning of the area, which was part of the East & West First Street Planning and Rezoning.

Sutphin said he believes his project is not in violation of the new zoning and is waiting to meet with city agencies to determine how the new regulations would impact the project.

The new date for the hearing on 9 M St. has been set for April 9.
