Construction Update

The overall plan for the site includes 18 large condominiums inside the church structure, 24 units in a new building on Chestnut Street where the old school once stood, and a third building on the Noble Street side that will be 3 stories in height with commercial space on the first floor and 8 “affordable” units above. The Noble Street building will be donated to the Northwestern Settlement House, a local community center whose neighborhood roots date back to 1901.  

Interior demolition and restoration work on the old Saint Boniface church building began on September 20, 2022. Excavation for the new building on Noble Street began around the same time. Excavation for the new building on Chestnut Street began on September 19, 2023.

As of today, March 29, 2024, a significant amount of work has been completed on the church building. The project manager on site informed SBI that the first move-ins will begin in the church building within 30-45 days. Completion of the new building on Chestnut Street is still about a year away. 15 of the 18 condos in the church have been sold as well as about 35% of the new construction.
