The BRA will consider a developer's plans to build a four-story, 69-room hotel aimed at observant Jews on VFW Parkway on the Dedham line.
King David Hotels Corp. is proposing the hotel at 1625 VFW Parkway - where an old McDonald's burned down in 2013.
The company's plans include a kosher restaurant, a synagogue and a health club featuring his and hers mikvahs for ritual baths.
West Roxbury is not normally among the first places that come to mind when thinking of Jewish life, although it does have a (not Orthodox) temple and a couple dozen Jewish cemeteries. Also, as one broker notes, the site is "only minutes from the highway and affluent Newton."
This would be West Roxbury's first hotel.
King David Hotels was recently spun out from Mazzal Holding Corp., a development company started by Nissim Trabelsi, an Israeli native with ties to the Boston area.
