The property, located next to Saint Therese Parish and School, off of Harris and Randolph Street, was once home to 17 nuns. Passionist Sisters Convent owns the property, but it is trying to sell it.

A Lansing developer has applied for a permit, and if approved, they would turn the house into a group home for up to 20 senior citizens.

Two other permits also need to be approved for the transition to become final.
