A Dedham developer has filed for permission to tear down 100% Delicias on Hyde Park Avenue at Canterbury Street in Roslindale.
Because the building is more than 50 years old, the Boston Landmarks Commission first has to consider whether the building has any historic or architectural significance. Anybody with concerns has until Sept. 27 to express them to the commission, via e-mail at [email protected].
Antonio Ferrara of Dedham, who bought the parcel in March for $1 million, has yet to file formal plans for a replacement for the restaurant site, which was previously home to a series of Irish-themed bars stretching back decades. Last week, the Boston Licensing Board approved plans by the restaurant - which has a takeout place on Centre Street in Jamaica Plain - to sell its beer and wine license to the owner of a proposed Italian restaurant in East Boston.
Ferrara owns a number of small properties in the area. In February, 2019, he received a building permit for a four-story, 17-unit apartment building that would site where the Lee Myles transmission shop used to be on Washington Street near Grove Street, between Viva Mi Arepa and Town Line Liquors, in West Roxbury.
Along with the restaurant tear-down request, the landmarks commission is also seeking comments on a demolition request for 1002 Canterbury St., the house that sits immediately behind 100% Delicias. The owners of the restaurant are still listed as that house's property.
