Rendering of proposal for The Gate, 5 McBride St.

One of the most-watched real estate developments in a neighborhood full of them returns to public debate this week.

The former James's Gate site at 5 McBride St. will be on the docket Wednesday when the JP Neighborhood Council's Zoning Committee meets. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Farnsworth House, 90 South St., just a block from the abandoned pub.

Proponents are pitching a four-story mixed-use building that would have 11 residential units and commercial space on the ground floor. Plans call for 12 parking spaces.

The initial proposal had five stories - not the currently proposed four.

The development is slated to have the same name -- "The Gate" -- as a new pub to be opened soon in Egleston Square by a former co-owner of James's Gate.
