A demolition permit application was filed last month for Riverside Baptist Church, located at 6th Street and Maine Avenue. Back in March, the Zoning Commission approved the PUD for the site, which will be redeveloped with a new Riverside Baptist Church and a 173-unit apartment building. The church’s location will shift south to the intersection of 6th Street and Maine Avenue while the apartment building will be located at 6th and I streets. About 10% of the apartment units will be set aside as affordable housing for households earning up to 50%, 80% and 100% of Area Median Income. There will be space on the ground floor of the apartment building for community-serving uses, such as a daycare center.
Construction on the project is expected to start before the end of the year with completion in 2018.
