Honoring A Legacy
The truly unique collection of new residences reenergizes this historic neighborhood asset – not only by serving as home to many new Capitol Hill residents, but also by honoring the long heritage of the site through the preservation of its historic elements and features.
Originally built in 1908, this glorious Capitol Hill landmark eventually reached the end of its life as a religious institution. Recognizing that this structure still had much more to give to the neighborhood, Community Three employed several unique reuse strategies, including renovation of the massive timber framing, restoration of the original stained glass windows, and repositioning key elements of the prior use (such as the altar and pews) into the final layout of each individual unique residence.
This one-of-a-kind property is host to unparalleled residential living, with each residence taking advantage of the former church's special architectural features. From the heavy timber beams in the high ceilings, to the dramatic 100-year-old stained glass windows, the design of each new residence pays tribute to the property's long and storied history.
