University Christian Church building, a 1928 Tudor Gothic sanctuary located at 4731 15th Ave NE is an architecturally significant building which will be sold, most likely to developers, because of a dwindling congregation.  The property is zoned for mixed-use buildings up to 65 feet tall. This KUOW article has photos of the interior and exterior of the building – http://archive.kuow.org/post/sale-nearly-100-year-old-seattle-church-dwindling-congregation. The building is filled with stained glass, carvings, and other art.  More information about this building is available at the website: https://www.uchristian.org/history.  The official press release about the pending sale of the building is on the church website:  https://www.uchristian.org/.

There are a number of churches all over Seattle, and in the University District in particular, that have had to sell their historic buildings.  Examples are University Temple United Methodist http://archive.kuow.org/post/needle-exchange-youth-shelter-be-displaced-u-district-church-torn-down and University Baptist Church https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/university-baptist-church-building-to-be-sold/.

It’s important for the historical community to be advocates for the historic buildings and their contents in our communities.
