A number of new residential developments in South Boston were approved by the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals Tuesday morning.

A project proposed by Gregg Donovan to construct a four-story, nine-unit condominium building at 48-50 Gold St. was approved by the board. The units will be two bedrooms and 12 spaces for parking will be provided.

The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services along with the office of City Councilor Bill Linehan, the office of at-Large City Councilor Stephen Murphy, and the Electricians Local 103 all voiced support for the project during the hearing.

The project must still go through Boston Redevelopment Authority design review process, but Donovan said he’d like to break ground sometime in the fall.

A four-story, eight-unit project on B Street was also approved by the Board Tuesday.

Being developed by Michael Gannon, the project will demolish the existing commercial structure at 111 B St. and in its place construct a condominium development. The units will be two-bedrooms and nine parking spaces will be provided for residents.

The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services along with the office of City Councilor Bill Linehan, the offices of at-Large City Councilors’ Stephen Murphy and Felix Arroyo, and the Electricians Local 103 all voiced support for the project during the hearing.

Gannon said he’d like to begin construction as soon as possible, but still has work to do surrounding plans for the demo of the existing building on the property.

Eight residential units slated for East First Street were also approved by the board Tuesday.

Proposed by Niskanen Real Estate Development, plans call for the construction of a building at 525 East First St. for condominium units and one retail space. The majority of the units will be two-bedrooms with one one-bedroom and possibly a three-bedroom unit. Eight parking spaces will be provided for residents.

The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services along with the office of at-Large City Councilor Stephen Murphy voiced support for the project during the hearing.

The office of City Councilor Bill Linehan did not support the project citing concerns that it didn't conform with the First Street Rezoning project.

Pending BRA design review, developers said they’d like to break ground in September.
