Large church with beautiful architecture and great acoustics. A great opportunity for a new church congregation, or for redevelopment. The Zoning is MU-4. Prominently located at the corner of Rhode Island Ave and 1st Street NW. Total building area 12,469 square feet. Lot size is 8,410 square feet. The estimated total seating capacity is 450 to 500. This is a "guesstimate" of 350 directly center and in front of the pulpit or stage with an estimated 75 additional to the left of center and also 75 to the right of center. The seats to the right of the center will require removing a non-load bearing partition that was installed by the Seller to create a separate meeting room with its own (smaller) stage/pulpit. Massive stained-glass windows are along both the R.I. Ave and 1st St sides. There is even a central "Bell Tower." The redevelopment opportunities are several with the MU-4 Zoning. Although the Historical Facade must be largely preserved, there are excellent recent examples in NW and on Capitol Hill of converting churches to multiple upscale residences. The DC Office of Planning has pledged to cooperatively assist any developer interested in pursuing this project. MU-4 zoning will also allow street-level restaurants, shops, etc. with residences above and a 50 feet height limit. The existing condition of this building is below average. A renovation on some level is likely needed, or at least the correction of some deferred maintenance items. The need to address certain repairs is reflected in the sales price.
