Built in 1925, the former First Baptist Church of Beaumont is a registered historical property and is situated on 4.36 acres, consisting of a full city block and over 139,000 SF in 5 buildings. All but 1 of these buildings is interconnected. The activity building (with wood floor gymnasium) is the lone separate building. The property has 3 lit corners with the 4th being a lit corner as well, save for a turning lane. The property is on the main artery into downtown exiting Interstate 10 at the 2nd light. The second main artery into downtown is Calder Avenue and this property fronts Calder as well. It also has frontage on Broadway, Magnolia and Willow. It currently has 205 parking spots striped but could be reconfigured to add more parking. There are historical tax credits to be had in the development of this property and the City is more than willing to work with any individual or company in the redevelopment of this historic site. Residential living is badly needed in downtown and this property could be a great property for such a venture with some retail and restaurant mixed in. Many possibilities.
