First Church of Christ Scientist – Application for Demolition

The First Church of Christ Scientist, located at 614 East 15th Street, is recognized as an historic landmark by the City of Minneapolis, and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. As a local landmark, the building is subject to the heritage preservation regulations of Chapter 599, Title 23, of the Minneapolis Code of Ordinances. The property has been vacant since c. 2006, and has seen significant physical deterioration since that time. The current owners purchased the property in 2015.
