Under Construction:

Cathedral Square is a project that will restore the historic Our Lady’s Chapel, the rectory building and the Marist College building. St. Augustine Cathedral’s parish hall has been demolished and is being replaced with a $12 million, 50,000 square foot four story complex. The Diocesan Complex will house offices for the cathedral on the first floor, a 500 seat convention and education center on the second and offices on the third and fourth floors for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson.

The Foundation for Senior Living proposes a seven-story 93,017 sqft apartment complex with 75 units for low-income seniors that will replace the old Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson offices at the SE corner of Broadway and Church. The project includes laundry rooms, a gym, outdoor patio space, socializing rooms, and private parking. Included in the proposal is restoring and repurposing the deteriorating Marist College building built in 1915, into a first floor community center, and 8 units for low-income seniors on the second and third floors. The project was approved for low-income housing tax credits(LIHTC) in 2016.

The Marist will be located at the corner of Church and Broadway along the modern streetcar. (Rendering/FSL)

The Marist College building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only existing three-story historic structure built with adobe mud in Arizona. (Rendering/FSL)
