Storefront church on Adams Street in Dorchester to become nail salon

The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a plan by Lisa Fonseca-Depina to convert the current Eglise Baptiste les Sentinelles, 417 Adams St., into a six-seat nail salon called Glam Gawds.

Depina-Fonseca told the board she would install a ventilation system to deal with any fumes in the 700-square-foot space.

The mayor's office blessed the proposal, with a neighborhood liaison telling the board her proposal would help resurrect "a pretty derelict area" on Adams Street. City Councilor Frank Baker also supported the proposal.

Nobody spoke against.

Lots of churches are converted from church to condo. It seems more fun to read about a storefront to church to storefront conversion. Or transfiguration.
