St. Boniface Saved!

It was one of the founding issues of Preservation Chicago and, at the last minute, the former St. Boniface Roman Catholic Church was saved as a part of a redevelopment that will include an adaptive re-use of the building together with a new residential building a facility for the Chicago Academy of Music.

With mere hours left before a demolition permit would be released for the shuttered church, Developer Mike Skoulsky of Stas Development closed on the property Friday Sept. 23. This happy outcome was the result of tireless advocacy for the Henry Schlacks-designed church at Noble and Chestnut from the neighbors, Preservation Chicago and hard work on the part of the staff at the city of Chicago.
