The Boston Redevelopment Authority on Tuesday approved construction of a 490-bed dormitory at Boston College, advancing a long-term expansion by the college that will include hundreds of additional student residences, new athletic facilities, and other improvements.

Administrators at Boston College said they intend to start building the new dormitory at 2150 Commonwealth Ave. in the spring. The six-story complex will include a mix of four- and six-bedroom apartments, outdoor spaces, and a health services facility.

The BRA board did not take up a separate long-term development plan by Northeastern University. BRA officials said that the university requested that its plan be pulled off the agenda Tuesday amid considerable opposition among Mission Hill neighbors.
