St. Boniface Development

We reported back a while ago about plans by the NSCA (Norris Square Civic Association) to build a residential building on the site of St. Boniface Church.  The Association has been working with Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez to come to agreements on the use of the land.  Last month, Sanchez and DeCarlo of NSCA issued a joint statement summarizing their updated plans for the site of the former church.  NSCA plans for 15 co-op housing units at the site were opposed by Councilwoman Sanchez throughout the spring.

The new plan call for no more than eight housing units.  A rendering of the new plan for the northeast corner of the St Boniface site shows seven two-and three-story, single family homes, each with two off street parking spots in the rear.  The design done by KSK Architects Historians Planners, Inc. call for brick facades on the seven rowhouse units.

According to contractual agreements to CPLC and by the requirements for grants awarded to the association, NSCA needs to build 30 affordable housing units by 2013 in order not to loose grant money.
