A 31-unit rental project proposed for West Broadway in South Boston was approved by the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals Tuesday morning.
The project, being developed by the Canton-based Evergreen Property Group, is located at 22-26 West Broadway. Plans for construction of a six-story building and 18 parking spaces on a combined two lots.
The units will consist of six studios, 17 one-bedrooms, seven two-bedrooms, and one three-bedroom.
Two retail spaces, totaling an approximate 3,700-square-feet, are also slated to fill the ground floor of the building.
Currently a four-story building and three-story building are located on the lots. They will be demolished for the project.
The project, because of its size, had to go through the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s Article 80 review process, which included a public meeting.
The BRA’s Board approved the project last week.
At a community meeting before the West Broadway Neighborhood Association in November, residents were receptive to the project, but raised concerns about parking.

Jason Cincotta, a developer with the Evergreen Property Group, said after the hearing that they hope to break ground sometime around May and construction should take close to 10-14 months.
At Tuesday’s hearing the project received the support of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, the offices’ of at-large City Councilors Stephen Murphy, John Connolly, Felix Arroyo, and Ayanna Pressley, the office of District City Councilor Bill Linehan, the office of Senator Jack Hart, and the West Broadway Neighborhood Association.
