The Board of Appeals on Tuesday approved a new $25-million building for the Conservatory Lab Charter School on Columbia Road at Quincy Street.

The new building will give the school a permanent building for its students in grades 3-8, who now go to class in a leased building on the campus of Carney Hospital on Dorchester Avenue. The school's K-2 students would remain in their current building on Hancock Street.

The school hopes to have the new building ready for students by the start of school n 2019.

The BPDA had previously approved the project.
