IB+A’s latest architectural renderings show a more conventional design when compared to previous versions that were originally penned by architect Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects, Inc. The approved design forgoes the glassy ultra modern windows and boxy profile for a tapered form that incorporates a Victorian friendly facade and window design. Even though current renderings may not be groundbreaking, the building architecture will more easily blend into the surrounding neighborhood and not visually overpower adjacent buildings.
A recent onsite tour revealed the church has long since been removed and replaced with an excavated trench surrounded by a perimeter of shoring supports. Wood square forms have been set on the trench floor and two excavators were seen huddled around a relatively small mound of remaining earth. Onsite signage, permit notices, and truck branding identified K2 Builders Inc as the contractors for the excavation. Judging by current progress and architectural renderings, construction completion should be in mid 2016.
