Restoration work is well underway at the vacant St. Gabriel’s Church and monastery in Brighton Center. The monastery is a Boston Landmark Building and one of New England’s few Mission-style buildings.
The monastery, built in 1909, will host 27 new residential homes with views of the Boston skyline while the church, built 20 years later, will feature 22,000-square-feet of amenities and community space. Altogether, the space will be transformed into The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s.
