Interesting.   Just had a quick look at those six houses.  the church already owns five of the six.   That last guy may be a hold-out?



I would hope they are not aggressively pushing him to sell - being nice would seem to be more their style. 

And if I were running the show, I would not go ahead and blast the other houses around him either, thereby destroying his neighborhood....  Wait until he or his heirs are ready/willing to sell.

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

If they're moving downtown, that might indicate they've given up on expanding where they're at. However, who knows what would happen if they sell the church.

It would be a shame to see the church torn down but I could see it happening for infill housing on that lot.  All of those areas around the Gathering Place will only continue to go up in value.  I wish I already owned real estate in Maple Ridge and West Brookside.

It's a very nice looking church but without a buyer, that could be 16+ lots in a prime location by Brookside and the Gathering Place that could likely get ~$200k/lot or more (so $3.2 million excluding the 5 extra houses they own). The tax records say it is worth $2.8 million, but might be much larger and more valuable than what it says with addons/expansions.

It might be a toss up for them between demolishing and parting lots or selling the church to another church that might run into the same issues down the line. I'm sure the neighbors would prefer it be demolished and turned into housing. If houses similar to new ones going in for the neighborhood are built, that would add about $141,000/year in taxes (~$9.4 million taxable value including land). Big gain for Tulsa and the area schools.

Or some rich person could buy it and convert it into a massive house! I bet a creative architect could make it work. People have converted old churches to homes all over the world and it can look brilliant when done well.

I could see that happening.  Similar to what they're doing at 28th & Peoria and the old Barnard Elem. site.

All Souls recently unveiled the concept for their new downtown church in a video presentation to congregants. Along with the video release, they've formally launched a capital campaign to raise funds for the construction of the new building, with the hope that it will be completed in time to celebrate the church's centennial in 2021.

Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kf0gH_ZZBk0

I haven't been able to find any static concept images to include. There was a floor plan on display on the day of the presentation but I didn't manage to get any photos of it.

Cool, I was wondering about this project.  Here are some snaps from the video:

Looking west down 6th


At night at 7th & Kenosha, it definitely will enhance that entrance into downtown

I was thinking the same thing, especially along 6th.  Some metal railings on top of the retaining walls would help.  I guess they have to account for the grade change from Frankfort to Kenosha.

It looks nice overall. As usual, a church will be a bit of a block-killer for pedestrian friendly or lively, but much better than a parking lot. This looks like a very expensive and thus long-term vision. With the turtle's pace of development in the hands of a few big-money developers, I'd be happy with just about anything over all the empty lots.

They can make quite a bit if they sell of their current land to the right developer to turn into mansion lots. Lots are worth around $200k near the old church so they should be able to get several million from their existing properties.

I wonder if selling off the land on Peoria is part of the capital stack for this project?  It definitely makes sense and would be a very desirable infill housing site in Maple Ridge.
