The Boston Redevelopment Authority approved a plan to convert a Mission Hill school to housing and to demolish a neighboring church hall and convent to make room for two residential buildings. When completed, the Basilica Court condominium project will have 229 units, with 28 considered affordable housing.
The Mission Church itself will remain a church. The convent and St. Alphonsus Church Hall have long been vacant. The convent will be replaced with a 116-unit, 14-story building. The church hall will be replaced with an 85-unit, eight-story building. The four-story school will be converted into 28 units.
