ENFIELD — A Manchester-based developer is seeking permission to demolish the former 10,000-square-foot basketball gymnasium at St. Adalbert’s School to make way for a two-storey, 20-unit building next to Higgins Park .

Developer Bill Bellock – director of Bellsite Development LLC – said if the Planning and Zoning Commission approves the measure at its December 15 meeting, he expects to begin demolition by March 2023, hoping to bring in tenants by fall 2023.

In 2018, Bellock renovated the adjacent St. Adalbert School site on Alden Avenue—which was separate from the gymnasium property—also into a two-story, 20-unit building.
