A New Jersey developer says it will soon file detailed plans to replace the old Phillips Old Colony House and Freeport Tavern at 780 Morrissey Blvd in Dorchester with a six-story, 207-unit apartment building.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA, the Michaels Organization, which also has projects in the works in Allston and Cambridge, says its plans for the 1.8-acre site also include a total of 143 parking spaces.
Some 92 of the apartments would be studios, 94 1-bedroom units and 21 two-bedroom units, the company says.
The site is located across Morrissey Boulevard from a Stop & Shop, a Lambert's and a Dunkin' Donuts by way of a pedestrian bridge.
The Phillips Old Colony House closed in 2017.
