A shuttered Catholic school in New Rochelle could be razed to make way for apartments, LoHud reported. Boca Raton-based Mill Creek Residential Trust is “in talks” to purchase the former Blessed Sacrament school building at 24 Maple Avenue from the Archdiocese of New York in order to construct an 8-story apartment building at the site, according to the outlet. The new building would house 338 apartments and have an underground garage and parish center. In its application, Mill Creek said the project would “create essential funding to support the parish’s ongoing mission and growth, including critical improvements it needs to make to the church and surround[ing] property,” according to LoHud. It’s not yet known how much Mill Creek plans to pay for the site. [LoHud]
