The Riverton Park United Methodist Church has a situation that’s somewhat unique in Seattle: It has a lot of land.
The actual building takes up less than 15 percent of the lots held by the church, 2.34 acres, which, on New Year’s Day, were blanketed in a white expanse of nearly pristine snow as sounds of worship emanated from the sanctuary.
One day, most of that land will be sold to a developer looking to build 30 units of affordable housing, said Rev. Jan Bolerjack. Right now, it’s serving a similar purpose.
