The first Boston Redevelopment Authority board meeting under Mayor Martin J. Walsh will take up a proposal for a massive development in the Fenway that would include 550 apartments, retail shops, and the city’s first Wegmans grocery store.

The approval of Landmark Center’s expansion on Thursday would advance the rapid transformation of the streets around Fenway Park. It would also extend the string of large developments approved recently under former Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

The project, at the intersection of Park Drive and Brookline Avenue, would result in the demolition of a parking garage at the existing office retail complex to make way for a large multitiered complex of buildings. The buildings, between eight and 15 stories, would contain the Wegmans, 110,000 square feet of restaurants and stores, additional office space, and 550 luxury apartments.
