St. Francis De Sales Church Gets a Price Chop

St. Francis De Sales Church at 575 Humboldt Parkway (google map) has just reduced the asking price from $450,000 to $375,000. Its location in the Hamlin Park Historic District enables the new owner to pursue the 40% historic tax credits for qualified rehabilitation work. I've previously profiled the church and its history, which can be seen here.


The cornerstone for the massive limestone church was laid in 1926 and it was completed in 1928. St. Francis was designed by George Dietel, one of the architects who designed our incredible Art Deco city hall. Dietel got some input on the design from Murphy & Olmsted architects in Washington, D.C. Although the school was demolished years ago, the former parish house is still present to the rear of the church and also separately for sale, here's the listing. It has been operated as successful rooming house and is also rich with details throughout.


Although the nave still cannot be divided within the historic tax credit program, the nine-foot ceilings in the basement provide the opportunity to build a few studio apartments and lease the space upstairs to a larger tenant. The large space would be ideal for a business looking for an open floor plan or traditional reuses options like music venue, performance space, etc.
