Any word on the plans for the old Seminary? I know the Charter school recently closed. I seem to recall talk of senior housing but I can't seem to find anything.

Smaritas has received a tax credit allocation to do senior housing on the large older part of the building, their plans are do a design charrette for the rest of the property to get it developed into single family and multi-family homes.

My dad went to high school there. 

I thought that was a Catholic seminary.  Is your dad a priest?

Still the large baseball field too. It says home of the Saints. Does anyone know if Aquinas College played here recently?Super large lot. Could accommodate lots of housing.

Aquinas currently plays in my neighborhood in Wyoming at Kimble stadium. From what I understand, they have played there for several years.

I wonder if 'Saints' is in reference to All Saints Academy, a grade/elementary school fed by multiple parishes.

 No. I think one of his classmates became a priest tho. He had nine classmates,  so it wasn't a large school.

Nothing to do with All Saints Academy.  Was the 'mascot' a saint at whatever school was last there?

This part caught my eye:

Pinnacle, which is expected to do the renovation work on the former seminary building, plans to pursue a housing development on 12 acres behind the seminary building and gymnasium, said Michael Garrett, the construction firm's president and CEO.

Details of that project have not yet been finalized.

I'm always sad to loose green space, but this lot has long been under-utilized, and hasn't (to my knowledge) been open to the public. So I think this could be a good thing.

I agree.  I do hope that whatever they choose to put in its place will still have some well landscaped green space that blends in with the surrounding neighborhood.  Fronting Burton, I would love it to resemble the Clark Retirement home complex on Franklin.
