Hall Street Partners proposes to convert the historic St. Charles Borrmeo Church into 20 condominiums. It has an agreement to purchase the property at 51 Hall Street from the owner, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Boston.

Waltham’s Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is currently reviewing dimensional variances sought by the developer, which offered a sneak peak at the proposal at a recent ZBA meeting.

The project would preserve a structure on the National Register of Historic Places, add much needed housing and create some affordable units. But neighbors were concerned about density and the impact on the neighborhood parking supply.
