The Zoning Board of Appeal today rejected a roof deck at 38 P St. after elected officials and the neighborhood association said residents are fed up with loud parties on the decks the area already has.

Jonathan Hueber, who lives in a top-floor condo at the building, had sought permission to add a roof deck that would be only for his and his family’s use.

But the mayor’s office, the offices of City Councilors Ed Flynn and Michael Flaherty and state Rep. David Biele and the City Point Neighborhood Association all opposed the proposal.

Ana Calderon, an aide to Flynn, said neighbors have been putting up with “loud parties at all hours” for several years and that the problem only got worse during the pandemic.

The neighborhood association noted that the eight-unit building is already way taller than the homes around it. One neighbor across the street said a deck would only further erode his view toward the harbor.
