The owner of the Junior's garage at River and Business streets this week filed plans to replace it with a $10-million five-story building with 32 residential units and ground-floor space for a coffee shop.
In a filing with the BPDA, Bhavya Patel of Sharon is also proposing ground-floor parking for 20 cars, as well as space for 32 bicycles for residents and 7 bicycles for visitors and 2 for coffee-shop patrons.
Four of the units will be rented or sold as affordable.
The location is across the street from the outbound side of the Hyde Park commuter-rail station and just outside Cleary Square. Patel's filing promises the new building will bring "positive energy" to the surrounding neighborhood.
