About Saint Gabriel's Monastery Redevelopment
159 Washington Street, Brighton, Boston, MA
Redevelopment of the 11.6-acre St. Gabriel's Monastery Site in Brighton. Plans call for new construction of four new residential buildings; the restoration of St. Gabriel’s Monastery, a Boston Landmark Building, and the adjacent Church; the retention on the property of the existing Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima and the renovation of the vacant house at 201 Washington Street. The project will also improve the approximately three (3)-acre, Olmsted Brothers-designed landscaped buffer along Washington Street, which will serve as a buffer between the Proposed Project and nearby residential areas, and the Monastery Path.
In total the development will include around 555 residential apartment units, and 105 of condominiums units, and approximately 510 parking spaces. The center of the development will focus on the renovation and adaptive reuse of the existing St. Gabriel's Monastery and Church as amenity space totaling over 22,000 square feet.
Per the project's Expanded Project Notification Form (EPNF), resident amenities could include "an 8,000 square foot fitness center, indoor basketball court, common lounges, kitchens, games room, café, outdoor pool, outdoor grills, and a generous amount of hard and soft landscaped areas."
