A developer has won Zoning Board of Appeals approval to replace a salvage yard at 277 Border Street in busy, busy East Boston with a five-story residential building.

It’s unclear whether the units in the building will be apartments or condos, though it is clear that there will 18 of them. Four will be studios, 11 will be one-bedrooms, two will be two-bedrooms, and one will be a three-bedroom running to 1,920 square feet.

The building is also due to have parking for eight cars and eight bikes; and a 510-square-foot commercial space.

Interestingly, the project marks yet another auto-repair lot along Border Street claimed for residential development. Per Universal Hub’s Adam Gaffin, there’s another 16-unit building slated for 425 Border; and a 64-unit condo building has the requisite approvals to go up at 301 Border.
