A plan to renovate a historic South Side church is progressing quickly, with a projected completion date near the end of 2024.
 
 
In September 2023, a Waltham-based developer, bought St. Charles Borromeo Church on Hall Street from the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Boston for $3 million.
 
 
Hall Street Partners plans to build 20 condos inside the historic Italian Renaissance Revival church, which was finished in 1927.
 
The developer received various approvals for the project in recent years.
 
 
A former chapel and the church courtyard have already been demolished.
 
In their place there will be a parking lot with 41 spaces of off-street parking.
 
 
Supporters say the condo conversion is preferable to demolishing the church and building expensive townhouses like the ones built on former church properties nearby.
