BRA will hold meeting for Washington St. development

The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) will hold a community meeting Dec. 4 for a developer’s plan to turn 3383-3389 Washington St. into a mixed-use development.

The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. at Curtis Hall.

The site, which covers three parcels, 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.

The developer, Peter McLoughlin, proposes to construct a four-floor, 27,633-square-foot building with ground-floor retail space and 21 residential units above, including four affordable units.
