Graduate Hospital Church to Become Sanctuary Lofts

Renovation is underway on the former Greater St. Matthew church across from Naval Square.

Though it’s no secret that the former Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church is slated for residential conversion, Hidden City reports that developer Alon Barzilay has a name for his new project: Sanctuary Lofts. Designed by architect Peter Lazor, the development’s plans include 38 apartments for the former church and its rectory.

Though Barzilay wouldn’t comment to Hidden City about a timeline, there’s no question the conversion is moving forward. Former church members are pleased with the plans, which include a strong eye toward preservation.
