Unique Redevelopment Site for Sale

Underhill Associates is a local real estate development company devoted to the sustainability and adaptive reuse of historic structures.

We were approached to purchase the beautiful Highlands Methodist Church property which was vacant and in jeopardy.

Through extensive due diligence with a team of development professionals, we have made numerous improvements to the property (see the attached list). This design process has led us to conclude that the highest and best use for the property will be a mixed-use redevelopment utilizing both Federal and State Historic Tax Credits. We believe the highly decorative Sanctuary space provides a signature creative open space for a professional firm. (Law, accounting, tech, advertising, marketing, architectural, engineering, brokerage, investment, consulting, etc.)

The rear educational building lays out well for efficient, residential units with an attractive courtyard. The parking layout provides for maximum utilization when balanced between split-demand commercial and residential.

Underhill Associates is offering this property with all improvements and design at an attractive purchase price of $995,000.00.

(Potential to negotiate involvement as consultant or partner.)
