A Covert Church-to-Residential Conversion Planned in Trinidad
Typically, church-to-residential conversions conjure images of living spaces with soaring ceilings and stained-glass windows. The former New Trinidad Church at 1201 Staples Street NE (map) may not have these features, but if the current owner has their way, the building will eventually be a small multi-family development.

Built in 1913, the two-story building on Staples Street has had a certificate of occupancy as a church since 1989. Now, the owner is seeking a special exception to alter the roofline and add a third story to the existing building, and append a three-story addition to the rear to create three residential units.
The cellar and first floors will comprise the first unit, the first and second floors will comprise the second unit, and the third unit will span the third story with access to a private roof deck. Teass\Warren Architects is the project designer.
The property is also up for sale for $1.2 million; it was last purchased in February for $660,000 just days before being listed again.
