Construction Continues at the Fisherman of Men Church
The Fisherman of Men Church, located at 3641 Georgia Avenue in the former York Theater, is continuing its building remodeling project. At present, the church is working on the main entrance to the building.
I’ve been scratching my head on this project for a while as there has been very little information shared with me by the church and I wasn’t entirely sure about their vision. I now have a much better idea due to a postcard that was found on the ground while walking the community (below). Aesthetically, it doesn’t appear that there are any plans to significantly alter the exterior of the church, which I appreciate. Although, the design rendering also appears to remove the upper roof (probably not something that will actually be done) and to add a giant video screen to the roof.
From a practical standpoint, however, I still have a significant concern with the work being done at the entrance of the building mostly due to the serious crack in the brick and bow to the wall that exists between the entrance and the first arch. Structurally, this should have been addressed and stabilized prior to the concrete board, foam, and stucco that is being applied over it. Failure to do this prior to the new work in front of it will just lead to a larger problem in the future.Development, streetscape comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
