    So I was dicking around northern Italian Village yesterday after returning from the CYP Volunteer Fair at the Easton Towne Centre. I rode past the Bethany Baptist Church at N. 6th St and E. 4th Ave. It looks like some re-hab or rebuild is going on with it. I asked a local on the porch next door what was going on with the church, he looked up slowly, still petting his cat by his side. He tossed his pitch black hair back and indifferently replied, “condos” and returned to his feline friend beside in a pleasant mid-August dusk. I rode on… to be continued.

    I do believe that Joe Armeni owns the property. Could be his next project after York?

    Joe Aremeni does own this church and the adjacent lots. As reported earlier here in CU, he has plans to convert the church to apartments and to add new-build townhouses on land adjacent to it. Until more info comes out, it’s hard to know if this fire will result in the church needing to be demolished.

    Photos: Fire Chars Empty Italian Village Church Building
    September 27, 2015 10:55 am – Walker Evans

    A fire broke out last night at an empty church building at 285 East 4th Avenue in Italian Village. The building is owned by neighborhood developer Joe Armeni, who told Columbus Underground last year about plans to renovate the building into eight condo units while filling in the surrounding lot with new townhome buildings.

    It’s a real shame that the building has been sitting there for almost 20 years, empty and owned by New Victorians, and it serendipitously catches on fire right before they initiate their development project. Were those “Tattle Tale Alarm” signs posted on the building just for show? This is almost as tragic as the Sunset Lounge collapsing just as the developer began preparing it for renovation. Interesting that these tragedies seems to befall historic buildings that otherwise could not be demolished. I too am interested to see the fire marshal’s report on the cause.
