609 Maryland Avenue NE
Church conversions in DC have become more and more prevalent in recent years, and now a property on Capitol Hill offers a new opportunity.
The church building at 609 Maryland Avenue NE (map), which has been home to a number of religious affiliations over the years, hit the market today for $5.9 million.
The church was built in the early 1890s as the Eastern Presbyterian Church, and then sold in 1956. Since then, it has been home to various religious congregations. Morning Star Community Development purchased the property in 2015. The building is being listed by Emily Ehrens of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
If it is purchased by a developer, the property will likely join the growing list of church-to-residential conversions in the city. Here are a few:
- Converted Church Residences in Georgetown Could Deliver This Fall
- 59-Unit, Mixed-Use Condo Building Proposed for Site of Shaw Church
- 85-Unit Mount Pleasant Church Conversion Aims For 2016 Delivery
