A look at renderings for the reuse of historic First African Baptist Church

At the beginning of 2016, developers purchased the First African Baptist Church at 16th and Christian. Since the church is on the city’s register of historic locations, the plans for development would need to involve the reuse of the building.

We now have a better look at plans for the historic location. The church, the rectory and the parking lot will all be transformed for use as a daycare facility, a five-story condo building and a single-family home.

From NakedPhilly:

The brownstone facade of the former rectory is being restored and the building will be converted into a single-family home. Next door, the former church will be split into a daycare facility that will serve up to 100 kids and two unbelievable condo units in the sanctuary space. As for the parking lot, the plans call for a five-story, eight-unit condo building with parking on the first floor. Architecture work was done by the husband and wife team Christopher and Emily Stromberg of S2 Design.
