From the Letter of Intent:
The Project is proposed to be constructed in phases in order to allow the existing store to remain open during construction and continuously serve its neighbors and customers. The Project, initially, will include a new Stop & Shop grocery store and approximately 360 residential units, 5,000 square feet of retail space, parking, 25,000 square foot publicly accessible open space, and related infrastructure. The first phase infrastructure will support the overall project. The remaining build-out of the Project is planned to include additional retail and restaurant uses, up to 650 residential units, and Class A office space. As proposed, the Project will create new connections to adjacent roadways providing increased vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian travel paths. The Project will provide extensive infrastructure in the form of large and activated open spaces, a new street grid, and a mix of retail, residential and commercial uses. Further, the Project will deliver a new Stop & Shop supermarket, increased housing options, including affordable housing and homeownership among other benefits to the community and City. In the coming months, Stop & Shop looks forward to continue working with key stakeholders, abutters, the community, City officials and staff to review the plans for the Project, which Project aims to serve as a gathering place for the Allston community.

Which, after they closed, the building was used for inside school bus storage.

The Home Goods and Stop and Shop got built around 2000 or so.

What "use" do you think most videos have?

I don't think you understand how this works.
