The commercial real estate services firm Colliers International said Tuesday that it has been appointed the exclusive sales representative for the former Holy Trinity German Church in Boston’s South End neighborhood.

The property at 136 Shawmut Ave. is owned by the Archdiocese of Boston and is made up of a 26,900-square-foot church and rectory building dating to the mid 1870s, Colliers said.

The firm added that the location is “likely best suited to a residential developer looking to take advantage of the positive momentum in the multifamily market of the vibrant South End neighborhood.”

In a statement, Colliers executive vice president James Elcock said: “This property is superbly located with access to the downtown business district and highways. The South End has seen a flurry of development activity in the past few years, and this site is in the center of it all.”
