Interior work on the historic Park Road church building has begun, which is great to see. In checking permit applications, I found that a building permit was issued on December 5, 2016, with the following scope of work:

“addition alteation and repair to an existing 2 story with cellar historically registered church to convert it to a 3 story with cellar and mezzanine, 38 unit apartment house, to include partial demolition of existing SFD on same lot and underpining of existing structure as per plans and approved BZA.”

The rowhouse at 633 Park Road is also part of the property and the approved BZA plans. In looking at permits for that address, a raze permit was approved on September 20, 2016, to raze the “2 story small semi – detached town house (row house).” Work was also observed here too.

    The owner wants to avoid paying blighted taxes on the property while holding onto it and hoping to sell it for around for 3 times the price he paid. All due to the deal he got with Zoning. The best way to avoid those taxes is get a permit and do some minor work on the property.
