Meeting to Discuss Church of the Redeemer Demo

If you’d like to discuss the pending demolition (and strategies to prevent it) of 4th Avenue’s Church of the Redeemer, the East Pacific Street Block Association is holding a meeting on Monday, July 16th at 7:30pm on the second floor of the YWCA at 30 Third Avenue. The congregation stated its plans earlier this month to replace the structure with a mixed use church and residential building.

  • The solution will have to be something other than Landmarking. The LPC will almost never landmark a religious building where there is strong congregation opposition, thanks to a nasty lawsuit with St. Bart’s Church (that claimed First Amendment infringement, and took it to the Supreme Court) in the ’90s. The LPC won but really picks their battles now.
