With the direction of South Boston real estate has been heading lately, it should be no surprise that another landmark piece of property is for sale. According to an article written by Jon Chesto in the the Boston Globe, the Marian Manor – a Southie nursing home with a large campus located on Dorchester Street – is on the market.
The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and infirm has decided to sell – a new trend in local businesses where the real estate is worth more than the business itself. The Marian Manor complex is made up of seven buildings almost 2-acres in size. That’s a big footprint!
So what does that mean for the residents of the Marian Manor? According to the Globe, the Carmelites would love to stay in the Southie on the current site similar to what is proposed for the Notre Dame Education Center but are open to moving to another location in Southie or Dorchester.
So we shall see, Southie! In a blink of an eye, the landscape of the neighborhood is changing at a rapid pace.
