Noble Square is a pocket in the West Town area, neighboring the Ukrainian Village and East Village. It's a growing community filled with artist and young professionals. More than half of the housing areas were built before 1910 and most residential developments before 1939.
St. Boniface Catholic Church has been part of that vibrant community for 116 years. It has endured 3 decades of vacancy and was slated for demolition more than once. Thanks to a local developer it is now ready to start a new life as condominiums.
As per the latest plan, Stas Development will convert the existing church into 17 condo residences and add a new structure adjacent to the church. The new building will include 24 condo units. An additional building to the North will serve as a new space for Northwestern Settlement - a Noble Square nonprofit.
From a design prospect, the developer says the new building will not replicate the architecture of the church, but create a modern concept that compliments the church's historic look.
As for the timing of the project, work on the church will begin first, before the new building gets off the ground. Provided approvals go as planned, the church's interior will be transformed and be ready to welcome its first residents in 2020.
