St. John’s United Church is hunting for an architect to help with the redevelopment of its building at the corner of Willow and Windsor streets. The congregation wants proposals to provide “design services” for the building of a smaller church facility and senior housing complex.
The new complex will replace the existing church.
The public call for tenders is just the latest step in the project. “There’s nothing new or startling” about the tender, said Brian Jay, leader of the team charged with implementing the redevelopment.
Jay said designs produced could ultimately be part of a development application to Halifax regional council.
Architecture firms have until noon, July 10, to deliver their proposals.
Jay said a newsletter providing updates on the project has already been delivered to about 200 neighbouring homes. Another newsletter may be produced in the fall.
Meanwhile, the church’s website has some information on the project. The Coast ran a detailed story in November about some of the problems facing the current church building.
