BJ’s may be headed to Roxbury

After getting the snub from Partners HealthCare last fall, Roxbury’s Parcel 3 has a new suitor and it’s quite a catch: BJ’s.

The big-box warehouse club is in negotiations to open a 90,000 square-foot store on Tremont Street in Roxbury, bringing a much-needed supermarket to the area. It would be the first major tenant in the long, tortured history of this property that dates to the 1960s when land was taken for a highway that was never built.

BJ’s is in talks to be a major tenant of the $350 million project known as Tremont Crossing, which sits on nearly eight acres across from the Boston police headquarters. It would be the first BJ’s in the city.

Feldman’s vision consists of 1 million square feet of space, nearly half of it retail. In addition to BJ’s, there will be room for 40 to 50 stores and restaurants — from independents to national chains. The rest of the development will include office space, 350 apartments, an extended-stay hotel, an African-American art museum, and a 1,500-space parking garage.

“Ultimately we will become a city within a city,” said Feldman, whose company began working on Tremont Crossing in 2010.
