Mid-20th Century Church built 1950. Located less than 1 block off of M St SW. This location is about to undergo a total "make-over" encompassing almost 10 acres virtually all around this church (see extensive info in attached documents). The Seller has already received several offers from various developers. But, the Seller prefers to sell to another church. If your ministry would like to be in the midst of "A New Model Community, an Arts and Cultural Destination, a Green Oasis, a Thriving Town Center," and these are just some of the terms the DC Housing Authority has published in reference to the redevelopment of the immediate surrounding area around this church! A new ministry could keep this church right in the middle of all of this totally new development, or there is an excellent opportunity to work with the developers already engaged with the DC Housing Authority and have them build a new "Mixed Use" multi-story structure in place of this building and build out a brand new contemporary church for your congregation on the ground floor at their expense for the privilege of creating mixed-use space above your new church facility! There are exciting possibilities here. You can keep this absolutely fine Mid 20th Century building, or you can upgrade by working with the developer for the city. The existing congregation has a different worship tradition and desires to relocate. But for a progressive-minded ministry looking to be in a new model neighborhood, this could be the perfect opportunity. Situated on an adjacent or common border to the District of Columbia "Greenleaf Community" Redevelopment project. The site is now Zoned RA-1 but the city is re-zoning it MU-10. The redevelopment will encompass at least 10 acres which the city's proposal states will become: "a Model Community, a Green Oasis, an Arts and Cultural Destination, a thriving Town Center." See planning.dc.gov/publication/southwest-neighborhood-plan The new SW Wharf (3.2 million square feet of development) is a short walk to the west, And the site is within 3 to 4 blocks of the Waterfront Metro Station and the Nats Park Metro Station. To the east, the site is a similar distance from the Capital Riverfront and the "Yards" which is part of the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI), adding millions of square feet of high-quality residential, retail, and office space. And to the south of the site, approximately 5 blocks is Audi Field and the Buzzard Point redevelopment. An awesome Mission Field for an inner-city ministry and congregation. Be sure to review the attached documents.
