Located at the former site of Temple B’nai Israel, this 46-unit complex is comprised of two buildings: an eleven-story wing on West 149th Street and a six-story wing on West 148th Street. A bridge that spans a landscaped courtyard space joins the two buildings.
Among several unique features is the architectural approach and treatment of its facades. Both buildings were sheathed in a combination of brick cavity wall, aluminum lightweight prefabricated panels and cast stone block.
The base of the structure serves as a new home for the Gospel Missionary Baptist Church, with a sanctuary, banquet hall and baptistry. The church has its own entrance on 149th Street and will own its space and identity within the new building.
