A developer says it will soon file plans with the BPDA for a two-building complex on Smith Street on Mission Hill on land that was originally part of the campus for the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help - also known as Mission Church up, on Tremont Street.
The plans by Weston Associates, based in the Back Bay, call for a 17-story building with 171 apartments and a 6-story building with 46 apartments and 20 condos on the top floors, according to the letter of intent it submitted to the BPDA recently. An underground garage would have space for roughly 171 cars.
The buildings would flank a former church building now used as offices by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
This is the second residential proposal for the land. Some 15 years ago, the then BRA gave approval for a redevelopment plan, which was never built, that called for two residential buildings and the conversion of the Mission Grammar School to residential units.
80-100 Smith St. filings and schedule.
