Riverside Church in SW Plans Residential Redevelopment

Working with Hoffman-Madison Marquette, the team developing The Wharf, Riverside Baptist Church, like St. Augustine’s and St. Matthew’s before it, is adding a residential component to its Southwest property.  The historic congregation, under the leadership of Rev. Bledsoe for 23 years, will add an apartment building to its current site at 7th Street, J Street and Maine Avenue, across the street from Jefferson Jr. High School and the Disabled American Veteran’s headquarters.

Nine stories tall, and featuring, according to Rev. Bledsoe, a “restrained design with screened panels,” the building will feature one- and two-bedroom rental apartments and will have affordable (80% of AMI) as well as market-rate units.  The building will also feature a public plaza at 7th Street SW.  Importantly, the apartment building, as well as the redesigned church sanctuary will be developed as a Planned Unit Development (PUD).
