BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Burlington planners have given approval to a plan for a 29-unit apartment building near the Vermont city’s downtown.

The new building on Pearl Street between the downtown, University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen Health Care would be made up of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with 41 parking spaces. Four units would be designated as affordable housing.

The city’s development review board approved the project unanimously on Monday.

It would be built on the site of the historic Bailey-Hyde House, which was destroyed by fire almost three years ago.

Erik Hoekstra of the developer Redstone tells the Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/1inQ2zs ) the apartments will not be primarily marketed to college students and the goal is to see “a real mix of people” living there.
