Members of the Take Back Your Neighborhood civic association last month unanimously approved development of a property at Levick Street and Roosevelt Boulevard.
The proposal is for the area near an existing Boston Market and health-care facility.
At present, there are two abandoned buildings that were once home to a furniture store. They will be demolished.
TD Bank has signed a 20-year lease to open a branch on site.
Construction will begin next year.
