Mount Carmel Development Update 10/09/18
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.
