Trinity-St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Maspeth is selling an old, underutilized building on the end of the block at the intersection of 60th Street and 60th Road.
The asking price for the property is $1.1 million, according to broker Rene Rose of Re/Max Liberty, and a buyer is already in contract to purchase the building.
Located at 60-11 60th St., the one-story property contains a gymnasium and kitchen, among other rooms, and was put up for sale because the church didn’t have a need for it anymore, according to Rev. Terrence Webber, the pastor at Trinity-St. Andrew’s.
The building was constructed in the 1950s and the church planned to add classrooms and a cafeteria to it for students, but that didn’t become a reality, according to the pastor.
The building has water damage and needs repairs. However, since it is zoned for residential use, a buyer could tear it down and develop it into housing.
