More "What to do with an old church"
Further to my post of August 23rd, 2010, we now have yet another example of what to do with an empty church besides tear it down. We can turn it into apartments! Yes, the former Church of the Redeemer at Grosvenor and Adelaide streets has been turned into 12 units for adults with developmental disabilities. A project of the Alice Saddy Association, the City of London (imagine them preserving heritage) and Riverstone Developments, the renovation provides tenants with rents they can afford with the occasional support they need. It also means an older building has been preserved and, heck, those solar panels don't even look all that bad!
