Groundbreaking has officially begun for PN Hoffman’s conversion of the Riverside Baptist Church at 680 Eye Street SW into a luxury 173-unit multi-family apartment building with ground-floor retail. The Southwest Waterfront project is located directly across from The Wharf project.
Once complete, PN Hoffman’s project will span 10 stories and 236,000 square feet with a 7,900-square-foot green roof. The existing stone facade and stained glass from the original church has been preserved and will be incorporated into the new facility, according to a press release.
Riverside’s new building is expected to attain a LEED Silver certification, while the mixed-use building is targeted for a LEED Gold certification.
The delivery for the $50 million construction project is slated for late 2018.
The contractor for the project is HITT Contracting.
