St. James Church / Oaktree condo

Oaktree Development and St. James's Episcopal Church plan to build a 46 unit, 78300 square foot condominium on the combined car wash and church site. The new building will contain a new parish hall for the church, and the project will provide the church with money to maintain their beautiful and historic, but crumbling, church building at the corner of Beech Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Neighbors are deeply concerned about the size of the new building, impact on the neighborhood, and traffic on Beech Street.
