St. Boniface saved from Wrecking Ball

With nary a minute to spare, St. Boniface Church in Noble Square was saved from demolition on Friday, thanks to a developer who finalized his acquisition of the century-old building and plans to add 39 residences and a music school on the northeast corner of Noble and Chestnut street.

"We closed! [on the sale]. Thanks to the support and dedication of the community, the city, and the team, the St. Boniface adaptive reuse project is now a reality," developer Michael Skoulsky said on Friday.
The price that Skoulsky paid for the church was not immediately available.
Last month, Skoulsky was given a city-ordered deadline of Friday to buy the church, which was also targeted by another developer who planned to demolish it and construct single-family homes.
