Plans for St Thomas Parish at 18th and Church, NW

Dear PoPville,

St Thomas Parish at 18th and Church, NW appears to be rebuilding their church that burned down by arson in the 1970s. The old Gothic structure was beautiful and was the church of many Washington elites, such as FDR. I am a former parishioner and think the new design is bold, modern, and will make a great addition to the neighborhood. Photos can be found at the link I provided.

For the past few decades, there has been a park on the former grounds, which is where the new structure will be built.

Wow, the renderings look wild:

Though they were originally posted in Feb. 2011 so I’m guessing they’re still in the fundraising stage?
