Morton Street Mews Taking Shape

Back in April I reported that Morton Street Mews (located on the northeast corner of Morton Street and Sherman Avenue) had broken ground and become an active construction site. In looking at the site a few days ago, the foundations appear to be nearly complete and we should start seeing the Sherman Avenue buildings rising soon.

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.

Below are some progress photos.
