Demolition begins today for the church and convent of the St. Boniface Complex, constructed in 1872 and closed in 2006. The Norris Square Civic Association plans to build a residential structure that contains fifteen housing units. There will be a permanent display of St. Boniface’s history placed on the sidewalk of the new development.
