A developer is proposing to tear down Harry's Bar and Grill, a convenience store and a Subway shop to make way for a seven-story, 37-unit residential building.
Unlike in South Boston, however, where bars have just disappeared, developer Yan Schechter says he'll leave space for Harry's Bar and Grill to return.
In a filing with the BPDA, Schecter, who says he is "committed to implementing the principle of New Urbanism, which promotes the creation of walkable, human scaled places that enhance local economies, improve public health, and build stronger communities," is proposing 20 one-bedroom apartments, 15 two-bedroom units and two units with three bedrooms.
Three of the one-bedroom units and two of the two-bedroom units will be marketed as affordable, to people making up to 70% of the area median income.
The $12-million building would have 33 parking spaces - more than called for by BTD guidelines for buildings right next to public transportation.
The BPDA holds a community meeting on the proposal at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15 in conference room 1 on the third floor of the Hawes Medical Building at Brighton Marine, 77 Warren St.
