A house of worship on 125th Street that is more than a half-century-old will have to make way for a new mixed-use apartment building.

Greystone & Co. is planning to construct a 12-story, 75-unit apartment building with retail space at the location of Samuels Temple Church of God in Christ. The church has been located at 75 East 125nd Street for 54 years. Greystone & Co. acquired the uptown properties at a federal Bankruptcy Court auction

Reverend Shirley Sutton and her son Pastor Tyrone Holmes used to own the parcels, according to the New York Daily News. Last year, they filed suit against a pair of Brooklyn-based developers who allegedly failed to deliver on their promise to rebuild the property. Samuels Temple received a $1 million settlement, according to the newspaper.

“The next step is to find my mom a church where she can worship and do her programs,” Holmes told the newspaper. “I don’t want her to miss any Sunday.” [NYDN] Claire Moses
