Harvard submitted updated plans for a new science and engineering building to the Boston Redevelopment Authority this week.

The 496,850-square-foot complex, dubbed the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, will be part of Harvard’s Allston campus.

The project was originally approved in 2007, but after changes were made to the plan, Harvard is again seeking approval from the BRA.

The new building will have an open concept ground floor that will attract “lively pedestrian activity,’’ Harvard wrote in the proposal to the BRA. The building will also feature research labs, teaching environments, and communal areas like gardens and an atrium.

The building is set to be occupied by fall 2020.
