Grace Brethren Church in Clairemont to subdivide property
On March 21, Sam listened to an engineer from Leppert Engineering present a project to the Clairemont community planning group. The project proposes to build eight houses on what is currently a one acre church daycare play area (the entire lot, including church facilities, is approximately 2.8 acres). “The church on that site wants to create some cash flow by building a few homes on excess property. This is the first step — gaining approval for subdivision of the property. It was well received. The church needs cash, the community needs homes, no outrageous density, everybody wins.”
The property is currently listed for sale at $725,000. The listing states that the buyer must obtain a subdivision as a condition of the sale. This subdivision is what’s being addressed now before things move forward.
According to their website, the San Diego Grace Brethren Church has been at the same location since 1957 (3455 Atlas Street between Stalmer Street and Baltic Street). The church is sandwiched between two large, mostly vacant, lots. The project proposes to build the houses on the lot nearest Baltic and move the current play area to the lot near Stalmer. The existing church plans to stay put.
