 Sliding from Before to After

A few weeks ago I wrote about the purchase of the "Miles Glass" site on the southwest corner of 8th and Virginia by the National Community Church, the "theater church" group that's also behind the rehabbed Ebenezers Coffeehouse near Union Station. Now, in a post on his blog, NCC leader Mark Batterson says that he has "just locked in another contract on an empty lot that abuts 733 Virginia Avenue, SE."
Given Batterson's description that the church will now have frontage on 7th, 8th, Virginia, and L, it would appear that the new lot under contract is the empty one directly across from the Marine Barracks on 7th, where a few years back a small developer had dreams of an apartment building, but never followed through; the lot then sold for $400,000 through a foreclosure sale last year.
Batterson says that this lot will enable NCC to add about 15,000 square feet to their final footprint--"and I don't think we're done yet." (Maybe that auto garage on the southeast corner of 7th and K is noticing that the church will soon own the land on both sides of it.)
The church is buying the properties because they're running out of space for services and staff at Ebenezers, Batterson has written. There's been no official announcement of what exactly they're planning for the site, but in a tweet to me right after I wrote about the first land purchase, Batterson said, "definitely another Ebenezers and we'd like to design a theater."

There is a fence up in front of the old apartment building at 718 L St - went up yesterday. Bldg is owned by G Properties - wonder if that building will go up on the market too. Hopefully the older homes on 7th and L St and the businesses on 8th will stay - only time will tell if they get swallowed up. But that will really be a big boost to that area.

Pierre Gaunoux, who owns 718 L, also owns 716 L (it looks like an apartment building, but is technically two lots) as well as the empty lot just to the east of where the Miles Glass property comes through to L Street, as well as the corner lot at 8th and L. Getting all four, from one owner, would be a big coup for NCC, if they're looking to do so. Wouldn't be cheap; they're asssessed at around $2.7 million altogether.

Welcome to the neighborhood NCC!

JD - are you saying they've bought both empty lots? One on 7th st. and the other facing virginia ave? We live next to the empty lot on 7th St. and would be very much interested in knowing what development plans there are there. Thx!


JD says: (10/26/10 4:24 PM)
Kelsey--I don't know for sure which empty lot they've bought, though judging from the description I quoted above it sounds like the one next to you. But the sale hasn't ended up in the land records yet, so I can't 100% confirm. They already own the empty lot on Virginia, because that was part of the Miles Glass site.
