The historic Madison Avenue Baptist Church parish house in NoMad will be torn down to make way for a 40-story condominium building developed by Ekstein Development Group, according to property records filed with the city today.

Certes Partners purchased the site at 30 East 31st Street for $15.5 million last June. Ekstein Development Group’s Erik Ekstein, in partnership with Pinnacle Real Estate, is planning to develop a $90 million condo building on the property.

The new building will be 71,500 square feet and contain 38 units. The second through eighth floors will each hold half-floor apartments, while the ninth through 31st floors will have floor-through apartments, documents show. Floors 32 through 37 will house duplexes.

The property will also include a community room, a fitness facility and a bike storage room. Morris Adjmi is the architect of record.

Ekstein filed permits to tear down the seven-story parish on the site in September.
