The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) approved the redeveloped as a mixed-use residential and retail building with 21 units of housing and over 2,300 square feet of ground floor retail space at 3383-3389 Washington St.

The site at 3383-3389 Washington St. covers three parcels and is currently vacant. It includes the former Royal Fried Chicken restaurant, a long-shuttered nightclub and a parking lot.

Family Dollar, a national discount-goods chain, attempted to open a store at the site two years ago before encountering community opposition.

Peter McLoughlin, who had proposed the Family Dollar plan, now wants to construct a four-floor, 27,633-square-foot building. The proposal also calls for 23 parking spots, three of which would be for the commercial space.

The building will include residential storage area, a fitness center, and dedicated roof terraces for the fourth-floor penthouse units.

The residences will be a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Four of the units will be designated as affordable.

The development team anticipates an 18-month construction schedule from the time they receive a building permit.
