When leaving the radio station today I saw all kinds of construction activity going on at the First Church of Christ Scientist on Chestnut Street.

I noticed when I walked by it going in early this morning at 5:30 am that the church, which has been dark at that time for many years, was actually sporting a lit Christmas tree in the little porch over the front door.  It caught my eye.  

When leaving I asked one of the construction workers what was going on and he said they were renovating the church into apartments.  There was a lot of excavating going on to the left of the church and in the back.

This is the first I have heard of this.  Anybody else know if it is true that this old, yet modernistic looking house of worship will soon be apartments?

Lots of work being done on the existing rear parking lot of the church today.
