Demolition papers have been filed for the old Mount Zion Church of Christ at 193 Henry Street. The red-brick building, once home to a busy congregation led by Rev. Charles Leonard, has been vacant for four years. It was bought by Daniel Wise last year and quickly put on the market as a”development site” by Eastern Consolidated.

It’s still for sale for $5.5 million, but since no buyer has come forward yet, Wise is moving ahead with demolition, likely to be followed by construction of a six-story mixed-use condo project with a community facility on the bottom.
