New Boston Ventures, the same folks behind the glassy redevelopment of the former Holy Trinity German Catholic Church and rectory in the South End into luxury condos, has purchased the old Our Lady of Victories Church and rectory at 25-29 Isabella Street in Boston’s tiny Bay Village.
And guess what? The new owner plans to redevelop the properties into a complex called the Marc (the 33-unit condo in the South End is called the Lucas—it’s not clear if New Boston has a Johannes and a Matthias up its sleeve, too).
Our Lady of Victories dated from 1883, and closed in 2016. The five-story rectory next to it dates from the same period and runs to 23,136 square feet.
As to what the new Marc will actually be, that remains to be seen—only the deal for the Isabella Street properties has closed, and no plans have been filed. The Lucas condos, however, have proven quite expensively popular.
