Owners of the Hite Radio and TV building at 1672 Washington St. are closer to their goal of demolishing the structure and replacing it with condos.
David Goldman and his business partner, Dennis Kanin of New Boston Ventures, gained approval Tuesday morning from the Zoning Board of Appeals for relief from a number of variances.
The project will raze the current single-story structure and replace it with a six-story, nine unit residential building with two underground parking spaces and two at-grade parking spaces in the rear.
Goldman said he would like to begin construction by early summer and estimated it would take 11 to 12 months to finish the project.
At the hearing before the board, the project received a slew of support from elected officials. The mayor’s office, along with the office of District 2 City Councilor Bill Linehan, the offices of at-large City Councilors Aynanna Pressley, John Connolly, and Felix Arroyo all gave their backing.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority, Boston Water and Sewer Commission, the Worcester Square Area Neighborhood Association, and the Washington Gateway Main Street also voiced support for the project.
The project was also reviewed by the Boston Landmarks Commission and approved.
