Summary: This iconic and deeply rooted Community Church needed to update their facilities and provide housing for Clergy and family. This was accomplished by subdividing their land and selling off a portion to finance the construction of a new Sanctuary, Community Rooms and Parsonage Housing.
The subdivision of land was a project in and of itself. Four new parcels were created and 3 parcels were sold in the heart of San Carlos. The existing structure was torn down to make way for three future homes.
As for the remaining Church land, construction is underway on the new community buildings. This includes a new sanctuary, community rooms, and a 3 bedroom unit for clergy. This is a perfect example of taking a piece of property and subdividing to utilize the highest and best use of the land.
- Pre- Subdivision Parcel Size: 41,637 Sq ft.
- Parcel Size Land Sold: 15,100 Sq. Ft.
- Parcel Size Church Land: 26,537 Sq. Ft.
