A major development that will bring a new hotel, housing, and retail space to the vacant lot on Melnea Cass Boulevard was approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s Board Tuesday.

The $50-million project on the 1.3 acre lot dubbed Parcel 9, which is located adjacent to Ramsay Park, will construct 145-room hotel, 50 residential units, and 12,600-square-feet of ground floor retail and community space.

The land is owned by the Boston Redevelopment Authority and Massachusetts Transportation Department, and was awarded to developer Melnea Partners, LLC through a public bidding process.

A Request for Proposals was put out in November 2010 and three proposals were received by the BRA as of July 2011, according to the BRA.

Parcel 9 was tentatively designated to Melnea Partners in May 2012.

The site is also located across from the recently approved Tropical Foods project at Parcel 10, which aims to build a new grocery store, residential units, office space, and retail space at the vacant lot.
