The city plans to ask for development proposals for a property on Chestnut Hill Avenue in Brighton.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority board voted unanimously last week for the agency to issue a formal request for proposals for the parcel at 132 Chestnut Hill Ave.
Richard Mulligan, a senior project manager for the authority, said the 14,000-square-foot property is occupied by an abandoned 3,000-square-foot building and a parking lot.
The city has owned the property for the past eight or nine years, and now hopes to sell it to a developer, he said.
“It’s a great spot,” Mulligan told the board at a meeting last Tuesday. “An area that has had a lot of residential development lately.”
The property is worth about $635,000, according to the city assessing department’s website.
