Church Center


Any large-scale building project in the midst of a city today brings change into the lives of many people. Special consideration must be given those who need to find new living quarters.

Nearly seven acres of land surrounding the Original Edifice and Extension are being cleared of old buildings in the Church Center development.

Half of this demolition and clearance work has already been completed to provide a site for the new 26-story Administration Building. Before the year is over, four more older structures will have been taken down to make way for the new Sunday School and the Colonnade Building. Later the block of stores and walk-up apartments on Massachusetts Avenue behind the present Administration Building will be removed so that a new entranceway and plaza area can be constructed for the Extension of The Mother Church.
