A vacant lot along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway attracted an array of building proposals Friday, including a 180-room hotel, apartments and restaurants, and a museum on Boston’s history.



The submissions kick off the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s second effort to build on Parcel 9, a triangular sliver of land at the center of a planned food-market district in Boston. The department rejected a previous round of bids for the site in 2009.

The property is adjacent to the building where planners are opening the public market at the core of the new district.

Three of the 2009 bidders resurfaced to take a second shot at Parcel 9: Boston Museum wants to build a museum with a public food market on the ground floor; DeNormandie Cos. is teaming up with Cresset Development on a plan for a food market, restaurants, apartments, and a rooftop garden; and Eamon O’Marah, now with the firm Jones Lang LaSalle, is partnering with Normandy Real Estate Partners on a 180-room hotel, public winter garden, and a food market.
