A proposal to turn this section of Storrow Drive into parkland is modeled after the downtown park in Post Office Square.
The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary wants to replace surface parking spaces currently split into separate areas by Storrow Drive with an underground garage.
As part of the plan, the hospital seeks to construct a 180,000-square-foot addition to its headquarters.
Completing both projects would allow Mass. Eye and Ear to add more than 250 permanent jobs, the hospital said.
