A developer is reusing Trinity Presbyterian Church on Zang for restaurant and office space to accompany a planned apartment development.

Original pans had called for demolishing the 65-year-old church building, but developer Randy Primrose last year changed the plan and is keeping the building.

The development includes a new 3.5-story, 50-unit apartment building facing Sixth Street. The church will be renovated to include a 3,000-square-foot restaurant space, 2,500 square feet of office space and possibly residential units. The complex will have a total of 76 parking spaces.

Find the history of the church, built on the site of the home of J.F. Zang, here.

Interior demolition on the space began last week, and Rick Shafer took these pictures.
