A proposed Moody Street mosque would serve the local Muslim population.
Plans for an Islamic mosque on Moody Street are progressing, according to Boston.com. The Waltham Islmaic Society has completed its purchase of the former New Landing restaurant and bar which it plans to turn into a mosque, according to Boston.com. Now, the group hopes to complete planned renovations within four months. The renovations, estimated to cost $150,000 are intended to bring the building up to state building codes. Currently, the Islamic group operates out of 16 Park Place but has been searching for a better place to worship. For many more details, visit the Boston.com article.
