If you’ve happened to walk past the corner of  Sherman Avenue and Morton Street lately, you’ll have noticed that the former church parking lot is now an active construction site. A backhoe loader is now on site and excavating the area along Sherman Avenue, apparently for the start of OPaL’s Morton Street Mews housing project on the site.

When finished, the redevelopment of the former Iglesia Ni Christo Church and the adjacent parking lot will contain about 25 units of three-story townhouse style 2 and 3-level condominiums.The 1905 church building — originally designed by William Sidney Pittman (1875-1958) for Trinity A.M.E. Zion Church — will be somewhat restored and incorporated within the project. More details about the project can be found at OPaL’s Web site.
