Summary of site plans and status

UPDATE: 8/10/09

Redeemer Presbyterian Church has purchased the property at 150 W. 83 Street, currently an  underground parking garage, from Central Parking Systems.  The church plans to construct a new Worship and Community Center at this location.  Redeemer’s contractor, Sciame Construction, has erected a sidewalk bridge in front of the property and will soon  begin construction starting with brick restoration on the building’s facade.  Central Parking, the current occupant, will vacate the space on or before August 31, 2009.  Members of the Church have already held meetings with members of the community and will make a presentation to Community Board 7 if necessary.

Gertler and Wente Architects are designing the structure to fit in aesthetically with the surrounding residential brownstones.  The new building, which will be Redeemer’s first permanent location, will include a sanctuary, classrooms, a fellowship hall and a “third space” that will be used for community outreach.
