Art Church to be demolished, will make way for new residences

A decision has been made to tear down the old Art Church at 2051 NW 61st St.

The church, which was coined the Art Church when it was turned into an art gallery and community arts space in 2009, will be replaced by a four-unit townhouse and a single family residence. The church, which is over 50 years old, was once referred to the Department of Neighborhoods for examination of potential landmark eligibility, but was deemed unlikely to qualify.

Appeals can be made through Dec. 17.
