A modern luxury apartment complex is going up at the site of Tucson’s iconic Benedictine Monastery after more than two years of negotiations, compromises, concessions — and sometimes name-calling.
Newly released renderings show two structures to the left and right of the midtown monastery, 800 N. Country Club Road, and a third rising up from behind, designed to accommodate a total of 255 apartments. Another 34 apartments will be located within the monastery itself.
Under the direction of general contractor Sundt Construction, crews have started preparing the grounds, with construction expected to be completed within two years.
