Crews made quick work of the structure that once stood at 11 West Broadway St.

Construction has begun at 11 West Broadway St. where the Quiet Man Pub once stood.

Developer Ron Simons of the Natick-based Bodwell Pine Corporation, began demolition work earlier in the week.

In the place of the famous Southie pub, a nearly 95,000-square-foot, six-story structure, with 50 residential units and 26 parking spaces will be built, according to the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

The rental units will be split between one- and two-bedrooms, with six of them deemed affordable.

The ground-level floor will be used for close to 8,200-square-feet of retail space. According to developer’s attorney, Marc LaCasse of The McCormack firm, Subway and Starbucks have both signed on to use a portion of the space.

The project was approved by the BRA in late 2010 and is estimated to cost $23 million.

Construction is expected to be completed in the late summer of 2012.
