The Lucas is located in the South End at 136 Shawmut Avenue. The project is a transformation of the former 1874 German Trinity Catholic Church into a unique residential development. Originally designed by Patrick Keely’s Brooklyn office, the project will insert a new eight story building within the existing Roxbury Puddingstone walls and 100’ tall tower. The approach re-imagines a striking steel and glass contemporary design that rises out of the massive stone walls of the former church, while respecting the architectural and tectonic qualities of the original structure. The attached rectory will be rehabilitated for residences with roof decks and contemporary amenities throughout.

The 80,000 SF project will contain 33 residences and 30 parking spaces at the lower basement level. Additional landscape feature
