New Renderings of Boston's Most Gabbed-About Conversion

New, 14 comments


Few recently approved or announced projects in Boston have elicited such emotion as the conversion of the old Holy Trinity German Catholic Church and rectory at 136 Shawmut Avenue into 33 condos complete with an eight-floor addition shooting through the original building's 19th-century puddingstone. Whether it's elegiac hand-wringing from a prominent Globe columnist or the more freewheeling pastures of the Curbed Boston comments section, people are clearly either excited or peeved at the plans. Now, courtesy of architect firm Finegold Alexander (and the Boston Business Journal) we have new renderings of just how awesome/terrible the conversion shall be. · Steel, Glass and Masonry [Biz Journal]
