I really would like to understand why turning it into condos is so “abhorrent”. I image it’s because of one of two reasons.

  1. It’s the notion of the building somehow being sullied by the conversion to condos. I can’t image that this is the case though, because the congregation seems fine with tearing the it down. It’s also literally sold off crosses and bibles to the highest bidders, so I doubt they’re big on the sanctity of objects.

  2. It’s the spector of gentrification. I recently lived a block away from this church. It’s one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the city. Tons of rundown rentals. The area could use some gentrification. It could use more businesses than laundromats, discount pizza joints, and sketchy bars. That’s only going to happen by bringing in some people with disposable income that’s can support more diverse businesses that the existing community can all reap the benefits of, on occasion.

So again, what is this benevolent reason for the distaste of condos in this building?
