The Marc 25-29 Isabella Street; Our Lady of Victories Church

New Boston Ventures has purchased Our Lady of Victories Church and rectory at 25-29 Isabella St. in Bay Village. They plan to convert the property into a residential development, called The Marc.

New Boston Ventures is the group behind The Lucas, in the South End (former Holy Trinity Church).

Sale just closed; no plans have been filed yet.

Any idea the purchase includes the parking lot that fronts Arlington and is behind the church?

It does not. Those 2 parcels are still recorded as owned by the Sawyer family.

That's a shame. I wonder what they're holding out for.

Did they buy the church and the rectory building? So they control that whole corner of Isabella and Piedmont St, roughly 17K SF? Someone correct me if I am wrong. The deed on record says roughly 7,355 square feet of land

edit: I did a little more digging and it appears the church was not actually included in this sale but New Boston was given the opportunity to match any offer that the church receives. It looks like only the rectory was included in the $11.4M

The Marc is apparently only the rectory building, 27-29 Isabella Street. Although there are indications in the article that they want the church also.

I wonder if they are trying to work out a deal for the parking lot parcels on Arlington (Sawyer family parcels that back up on the church)? Now that would be an awesome combination of parcels.
