Church gets permits for $2.5M renovation to Lenox Hill property it bought for $22.6M

Church of the Epiphany, on June 17, was given a permit for a $2.5 million project that will add storage space, office space, a kitchen, and convert the lower level of a duplex apartment to classrooms, within a 28,325-square-foot building at 351 East 74th Street in Lenox Hill.

The project, which calls for work on all floors of the building, will decrease the zoning square feet of the church from 28,615-square-feet to 28,325-square-feet. The plans were pre-filed on July 1, 2019.

The project is described in the filings as: interior and exterior renovations to existing house of worship on sub-cellar, cellar, floors one to six, roof and to remove mezzanine, as shown on plans. The initial cost as reported in the DOB filing for the work described in this permit application is $2,539,000.

The work will add an accessory office and kitchen to the cellar of the building, according to the plans. An accessory sanctuary and office space will be added to the second floor, while storage space will be added to the third floor. The lower half of a duplex apartment on the fourth floor will be converted to accessory classrooms.

Acheson Doyle Partners is the architect listed on the application.

The property was acquired for $22.6 million on February 20, 2019 after the church sold its former location to Weill Cornell Medical College for $68 million.
