Developers who bought the former St. Vincent de Paul Church at E and West 3rd streets in South Boston say they will soon file plans to add a couple floors to the building to create a 35-unit residential building.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA this week, developers David Winick and David Matteo of Cedarwood Development they will keep the church's current facades in place while adding enough floors to create a six-story building.
They say they would also build a garage that could hold 35 cars, most in a "stacker" system. The letter signals they will shortly file detailed plans for the project.
Winick and Matteo paid the archdiocese $6.1 million for the church, which was opened in 1899 and then shut in 2015 when pieces of the ceiling began falling to the floor.
