A 65-year-old church building on Zang between Fifth and Sixth streets will be reused for restaurant and office space, according to a revision the City Plan Commission will consider Thursday.
Developer Randy Primrose last year announced plans for the property that called for tearing down the Trinity Presbyterian Church and building 70 new apartments, a swimming pool and a parking lot.
The new plan calls for building a new 3.5-story, 50-unit apartment building facing Sixth Street. The church would be renovated to include a 3,000-square-foot restaurant space, 2,500 square feet of office space and possibly residential units. The complex would have a total of 76 parking spaces.
The church is on the site of J.F. Zang’s 1906 home in what was known as the Crystal Hill Addition. The Trinity Presbyterian congregation had meetings in the home until building the current church in 1950. Membership dwindled as the congregation aged, and it closed in 2008.
