Quincy-based The Grossman Cos. has proposed Everett’s largest single multifamily development yet, seeking to build 800 apartments on the site of a Stop & Shop supermarket on Revere Beach Parkway.

The project architect is Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype Inc.

The only occupant is an 88,000-square-foot Stop & Shop supermarket built in 2000. Grossman acquired the land in 2018 for $15.92 million from its Connecticut owner.

Plans filed with the city show units split between three buildings between 7 and 11 stories tall, all over parking decks, which frame a central pedestrianized street that will be used for deliveries. A total of 15,000 square feet of commercial space is included in the design, split between 6,100 square feet of retail space and 3,800 square feet of restaurant space. The unit mix listed in the application is: 150 studios, 494 one-bedrooms and 156 two-bedrooms.

The project’s application notes its proximity to the Chelsea Silver Line and future Chelsea commuter rail stations, but also includes 906 parking spots due to city parking requirements. Other amenities will also include a residents-only pool and a fitness center.

The project isn’t the only large development in the industrial swath that straddles the Chelsea-Everett line. It abuts The Pioneer, completed by Connecticut-based Post Road Residential in 2019, and San Diego-based Fairfield Residential’s 692-unit Chelsea Clock development, currently under construction. Closer to the Encore Boston casino is Post Road’s successful Batch Yard development and a proposed 591-unit apartment complex a few blocks down Revere Beach Parkway from the Grossman site. And The Davis Cos. bought an 18-acre site last year deeper into the industrial zone near a large Amazon facility, which it could redevelop for industrial uses. The city is also seeking to encourage more private development in its historic center.

While a small portion of that site sits across the Chelsea line, only surface parking and a ground-floor retail space will extend into that city. The project is slated to come before the Everett Planning Board on Aug. 24. The application states the project will need variances for a reduction in the required parking, for height and for setbacks.

The Grossman project is just one of a number of multifamily projects planned on the site of grocery stores throughout the Boston area, including in Charlestown and Somerville.
