The Riverside Baptist Church is getting a restoration, and helping others find affordable housing in the process.

At Tuesday’s meeting, the Fort Worth City Council approved a zoning change for a multi-family development at 3111 Race Street and 3020 Murphy St. The area is located at the edge of the Six Points Urban Village near the intersection of Riverside Drive, Race Street, and Belknap.

District 9 Councilwoman Ann Zadeh, in whose district the project lies, said the project proposal is “a success on a number of fronts.”

“This project will be restoring the facades and remodeling the interiors of the church. This building has been an important anchor to the Urban Village and there is great excitement surrounding its preservation and adaptive reuse,” Zadeh said. “The restored buildings will be listed on the National Register, and in addition to the historic preservation component, this project will provide quality affordable housing in the rapidly improving Six Points Urban Village.”

Much of the surrounding area was rezoned to to multi-family in order to prepare it for higher density redevelopment to take advantage of the location. There is an established single family neighborhood to the north that directly abuts the northern portion of the site.
