Historic Sanctuary/Church of the Beatitudes Update

Here’s an update from the property developer:

We are proceeding with the two houses facing 29th. The designs are the same designs that I originally reviewed with you and CHNA.

I have not been able to move forward with the designation on the sanctuary at this time as I have not received the final comments on the church conversion from the city. The plans, after 3 months, are still with the City for approval! The City has performed the review however not completed the comments etc to be able to get them back to me. Once I get them back and re-submitted I will then work with the City’s Historic Preservation staff on the application for designation.

The plan is to still wait to perform any work on the church until the homes on 29th are very near completion. That will be at least 6 months from now. It has worked well as the congregation is still working in the building, and they have not moved everything out at this time.

I hope everyone is ok with everything. I am trying to stick to my word on all that I promised the CHNA. We have put up a fence to keep dust and any loose debris from hindering the neighborhood. I am on site daily, if anyone has any questions please let me know and I will answer best I can.

CHNA remains in contact with the developer and the City’s Historic Preservation staff and send updates as they are available.
