Flooring chain wins approval to move into former National Wholesale Liquidators on Morrissey Boulevard

A rendering of what the refurbished store at 729 Morrissey would look like as a Floor & Decor.

The Zoning Board of Appeal on Tuesday approved plans by Floor&Decor to renovate and move into the now shuttered National Wholesale Liquidators building at 729 Morrissey Boulevard.

Floor&Decor, based in Atlanta, will use the roughly 83,000-square-foot building for a flooring superstore.

As part of its proposal, the chain says it will add more trees and shrubs around the property, put in a new MBTA bus shelter and stop rebuild the drainage system under what will become a 118-lot parking lot - and repave the parking lot at the adjacent CVS, which both a company architect and zoning-board members agreed currently approximates the surface of the moon.

The BPDA board approved the project in March.

Floor&Decor did not say at the hearing when it hopes to open the Dorchester store.
