Tristar Capital could soon bring a retail development to the Miami Beach Congregational Church – the city’s oldest.

The development could net the cash-strapped church $100 million over the next 50 years. Architect Touzet Studio and landscape designer Raymond Jungles have released renderings of the project, according to Curbed.

“We are also very much looking forward to working with the church and restoring the facade of the original structure and bringing this landmark building back to its former glory,” the designers said in a statement. “The church will open directly to Lincoln Road and Raymond has proposed a planting plan of coconut trees that will bring back the design of the original front landscape.”

The limestone, glass metalwork project is located on a prominent corner of Drexel and Lincoln. [Curbed] Christopher Cameron
