New renderings of the South End church-turned-condo, “The Lucas,” show an interior just as impressive as the soaring eight-story glass-and-steel exterior.

Once the site of the 19th century Holy Trinity German Church, 136 Shawmut Avenue will eventually house 33 luxury condos, a gym, and garage parking. The property is being developed by South End-based New Boston Ventures in tandem with architect James Alexander of Finegold Alexander Architects, and is expected to be completed around fall 2016.

The homes will range from one to four bedrooms, and are priced from the mid $600,000s up to $4 million. Sounds pricey, but homebuyers get direct elevator access, a private library, and a little piece of history. Built in 1874, many of the church’s Gothic-style features, like its 110-foot steeple and puddingstone façade, will be refurbished and kept intact.
