Boston Redevelopment: 19th Century Church Readaptions

Boston condo conversions #BostonCondos #BostonRealEstateFive Boston area churches, all built in the mid-to-late 1800s, are featured in a recent Boston Magazine story about church-to-condo conversions. Four are already in use, and the fifth one the South End'sHoly Trinity German Church is expected to be ready for occupancy by spring of 2017.That fifth one, now known as The Lucas, will probably be the most architecturally dramatic of them, due to the contrast of its original gothic style with the ultra-modern steel and glass top it will be getting.Units in The Lucas will range from650to3,500 square feet for about$600,000to$4 million each, according to Boston Magazine.One of Boston'sfirst church-to-condo conversions happened in 1983, when architect Graham Gund readapted the Mount Vernon Congregational churchon Beacon Street in the Back Bay.High ceilings, beautifully arched windows, and dramatic staircases are some of the features frequently foundin these readapted church residences and their common areas.Read Boston Magazine's From Churches to Condos.Are yourelocating to the Boston area?
