Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church will be renovated and converted into a residential structure with 14 homeownership units.

Proposed East Boston Development Under Official Review
The proposed redevelopment at the site of the former Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in East Boston’s Maverick Square neighborhood is under official review by the Boston Planning and Development Agency.
The proposed project would transform the site into 115 residences across two buildings. The church would be turned into 13 residences and to connect it to a new 15-unit building. The plans also call to tear down the convent across the street for a six-story building with 87 units - with part of the building being just four stories tall and mimicking a row of townhouses to better blend in with the neighborhood.
East Boston church property slated for residential redevelopment
The site of the shuttered Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in East Boston’s Maverick Square neighborhood could be redeveloped into 115 residences per newly revealed plans. Frankfort Gove LLC proposes to restore and expand the existing church, and construct a new four-to-six-story residential building on the site. The expanded church would contain 28 residences, and the new building would contain 87. The existing rectory and convent buildings are structurally deficient and would be demolished. The proponent has filed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to develop the site with the City of Boston, starting the project's review process.
