A major $45M redevelopment project in Downtown Tucson will save the historic Marist College and demolish two other buildings to make way for the new Cathedral Square (AZBEX, July 10, 2012).

With a vote of 7-0, Tucson Mayor and Council approved the demolition of Parish Hall, which sits just to the north of Saint Augustine Cathedral, and is 100-years-old.

The plan approved is to replace the historic Parish Hall building on West Ochoa Street with a four-story building, including a banquet hall and offices.

The Mayor and Council also approved demolishing the two-story Bishop Moreno Pastoral Center offices at 111 S Church to make way for a seven-story low-income senior apartments building, having a project cost of $24.5M.

Foundation for Senior Living (FSL) is the same group restoring the Marist College building at 64 W. Ochoa St. that will house eight additional affordable housing units for a total of 83-units approved for affordable housing.

There is no timeline set yet for demolition and construction to begin.
