The developers behind a five-story mixed use development proposed for East Broadway will be in front of the South Boston community Wednesday night to go over the project’s plans.

A public meeting, sponsored by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, will be held Feb. 19 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Tynan Community Center, 650 E 4th St.

Proposed by the Empire Realty Trust, plans call for the construction of a four-story building on top of an existing parking garage at 728 East Broadway. The top floor would be set back from the roof line, according to project drawings.

The building is proposed to house three ground floor commercial units, as well as 25 residential units, which would be located on the top four floors. Forty-six parking spaces, which are proposed to be split between at-grade spaces and double height lifts, are included in the project. The parking would be accessed from East Third Street.

The footprint of the existing building would not be altered for the project.

In addition to needing the approval of the BRA, the project will need the OK of the Zoning Board of Appeals for a number of zoning variances including insufficient off-street parking, excessive height, and an excessive floor area ratio.
