We hear Emanuel Temple Seventh Day Adventist Church, located at 2707 Dewitt Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, is for sale. The church, located on the corner of Raymond Avenue, we hear is considered a rare mail-order chapel.
The listing has the property listed for $1.5 Million dollars. Could the historic church be demolished and residential housing built in its place?
We hear from City staff that the property is zoned for residential use so that indeed could be the case. I’m told the buyer would then have the right to build a residential use in place of the historic chapel.
More updates when information is available.
