ELMO Realty Co. is planning to develop a 30,000-square-foot mixed-use building at 58 West 135th Street, located in Harlem. The new building will include 11,000 square feet of space for the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church across the ground and cellar levels, followed by residential units on the floors above, The Real Deal reported. One of the apartments will be designated to the pastor of the church.
ELMO Realty made a deal with Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church to develop the church’s property after the existing facility became too costly for the church to maintain. The structure is expected to be demolished, although permits to do so have not been filed at this time.
