Pastor Frietas’s Urban Connect Church

We recently shared our professional creativity toward renovating a Phoenix semi-restored 1940s industrial building for new contemporary church use.


One of our ideas included an opportunity for an artist to be commissioned to paint the exterior. We referenced local mural work of a close artist friend of mine, Rose Johnson (northwest of Thomas Road and 16th Street in Phoenxi).  Located at 45 West Buchanan, this property has a wonderful future for leased gatherings, given massive pre-existing openings in the north and east perimeter walls that offer panoramic city views.


Our best to Urban Connect and also to the inspired efforts of Michael Lavine (artist-entreprenuer-developer-preservationist-historian who stewarded the initial effort to renovate this structure for a new and exciting city use rather than demolition).
