The Boston Redevelopment Authority will hold a community meeting Oct. 7 on a proposed renovation project at 70 Parker Hill Ave. that would turn the former commercial building into 46 residential units.

According to the project notification form, 70 Parker Hill Ave. is a building formerly used by the New England Baptist Hospital, but that has been vacant for 10 years. The redevelopment is proposed by an East Boston partnership called Jamaica View LLC in collaboration with contractor GVW Incorporated, also East Boston-based.

The renovation project would turn the building into an apartment complex consisting of studios and one- and two-bedroom units. That would include 40 market-rate units and six affordable units. The project would add an additional floor and more than 10,000 square feet to the building.
