One Silver Spring structure that has bugged me for some time is the office-building-turned-church located at 880 Bonifant Street. For years this was a nondescript mid-century commercial structure until a significant addition turned it into one of the biggest eyesores in all of downtown Silver Spring (and that's saying a lot).
I sincerely hope that the purchasers of this prime real estate, located just blocks from DTSS and surrounded by the future library, the planned development on the adjacent block and the so-called Fenton Street Village, demolish this Frankensteinian abomination and replace it with something that isn't painful to behold. Of course, without owning the adjacent gas station property, options could be somewhat limited.
Oddly, the real estate company handling the sale has opted to include a decades-old pre-renovation "before" photo in the listing. (Note the doing-giant-lines-of-cocaine-in-the-back 80's limo parked in the gas station lot to the right.)
I don't know what the future plans are for the Iglesia De Restauracion congregation, which presently utilizes this building as a house of worship, though a far more conventional church structure just happens to be available up Georgia Avenue:
Thanks to BR for alerting me to the listing.
