Boston’s Zoning Board of Appeals has signed off on developer Adam Sarbaugh’s plan to replace the building at 951-959A Dorchester Avenue that houses the Dorchester Market and the Tom English Bar with a five-story, 38-unit apartment complex.

The redevelopment will have room for another restaurant—though not Tom English—and for the market once again. The approximately $6 million project will also include five affordable units and 26 underground parking spaces.

The pitch to the city, however, stressed the project’s proximity to public transit (it’s about a 10-minute walk from the JFK/UMass stop of the Red Line):

In close proximity to the MBTA’s subway station(s) and along its many bus routes, the proposed project ... Site has been carefully designed and planned as a transit and pedestrian focused development, to enhance future connectivity, walkability and neighborhood convenience at this gateway section of Dorchester Avenue.

Construction is expected to take 18 months. Stay tuned.
