Most Recent Update
April 24, 2018
On April 19, 2018 The Chicago Plan Commission officially approved Stas Development's plan to restore Saint Boniface Church and develop the adjoining vacant lots.
The approved plan, supported by neighbors, community organizations and Preservation Chicago, allows for 17 condominiums inside the church building, 24 condominiums in a new 4-story building to be constructed on the Chestnut St. side and a new two-story structure on the Noble St. side. The Noble street building will be donated to the Northwestern Settlement House and will have office space on the first floor and 4 affordable apartments on the second. The total number of on-site parking spaces will be 44. (three more than required by City code)
The next step in the process is for Stas Development to get complete City Council approval. The Council will vote on Stas's plan on May 9, 2018
