Goodbye to Jimmy’s Harborside . . . and hello to Legal Sea Foods.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority voted yesterday to approve plans to replace the longtime home of the now-defunct Jimmy’s Harborside with a new $30 million office and restaurant complex.

The 70,500-square-foot project will include locations for four new restaurants, including a Legal Sea Foods, a city official confirmed.

The complex includes two buildings, each with two eateries, as well as a small kiosk building nearby offering indoor and outdoor cafe seating.

The developer, Edward Nardi of Cresset Harborside LLC, will begin work on the project in the next few months, with an opening currently scheduled for the spring of 2009.

“This project will bring new office space and restaurants to the South Boston waterfront,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino said in a statement.
