Tremont Street Condo Proposal to Face Boards Today, Thursday

It's a big week for the proposed project at the site of the Olde Dutch Cottage Candy building.

The , that would replace the Olde Dutch Cottage Candy building at the corner of Tremont and Dwight Streets will go before two boards this week.

The project will be considered by the Zoning Board of Appeals shortly after 9:30 a.m. today at and by the South End Landmark District Commission at about 8:25 p.m. Thursday in Boston City Hall’s Boston Redevelopment Authority Board Room on the ninth floor.

The project is the fifth item on the Zoning Board of Appeals’ agenda, with the meeting scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. It’s the last item on the Landmark Commission’s agenda (see attached).

The Zoning Board of Appeals will address non-conforming floor-area ratio (FAR), open space and parking issues.

The Landmark Commission . The project is listed under “Advisory Review” on the commission’s agenda, meaning it will be discussed again but not acted upon.

At the commission’s first meeting on the project in mid February, members said that they liked many of the design aspects of the project, yet questioned whether the “Art Deco” building as a whole would fit in with the “Victorian-era” style of the neighborhood.
