Project Description
The Project is the redevelopment of the site of the Villa Victoria Center for the Arts which was located in the former All Saints Lutheran Church at 85 West Newton Street. IBA had to demolish the structure in 2020 due to severe structural conditions. The site is 9,301 square feet with frontage on West Newton Street. The site is adjacent to City of Boston O’Day Park and the proposed project is designed to have a relationship to West Newton Street, the park, and its neighbors. The proposed new approximately 26,000 square foot four (4)-story building will create a new multi-purpose community arts center. Uses will include a performance and events multipurpose space, art exhibition space, practice rooms and classrooms, meeting and community rooms, and offices for IBA administration, resident services, youth programming and other arts and services, as well as the property management office for the IBA housing properties. The Project will be constructed in one phase.
