Construction projects in the Boston area
Gate of Heaven
Gate of Heaven Elementary School, closed in 2009, is targeted for redevelopment by a Boston firm that wants to build 39 apartments and a new rooftop garden. Across the street, the gymnasium will be converted into residences by a developer who is also building homes where the rectory once stood.
The developer is promising to preserve the buildings original architecture and restore parts of the brick facade that have deteriorated over the years. The $18 million project will include 44 surface parking spaces and a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. The developer has not set a timetable for starting construction.
