Developer Michael Moore last week filed his detailed plans for replacing the Family Dollar, a pizza place and three other shops on West Broadway with a 44-unit apartment building and a 50-car garage that has room for stores on the first floor.
In plans filed with the BPDA, Moore said all of the units would have either one or two bedrooms.
He filed the plans just a few days after the zoning board approved his seven-story replacement for the Gulf station at West Broadway and A Street.
Moore's building would come with rooftop decks and a dog-walking area. Units facing Broadway would have balconies for "the tenants to watch and be part of the activity on West Broadway."
Six of the units would be marketed as affordable.
The retail space "will offer varied commercial opportunities bringing businesses back to the neighborhood," Moore's application states. It does not say whether the businesses being brought back will include the ones being displaced by the new building.
Moore hopes to begin construction in early 2019, with completion in late 2020.
The BPDA has scheduled a public meeting on the proposal for 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 11 at the Condon Community Center, 200 D Street in South Boston.
