The application states the developer will replace 2 one story building to one 3-story building with an underground parking for an additional 57 car. The most interesting aspect of this application is that they intent to build a church on the first floor which includes offices, class rooms and etc. I believe the most concerning aspect of the application is that church statement, since there is no warranty this will always be a church or ever be a church. So that is something to keep in mind when thinking about this application.
