Development team members offered new details about the major Christ Episcopal Church redevelopment project during a city meeting last week.

The Portsmouth Housing Authority is working with the church to redevelop the 1035 Lafayette Road site with 44 work-force housing units, a headquarters for Haven, a transitional housing unit, a renovated day-care center and a celebrated burial ground.

Craig Welch, PHA’s executive director, said the agency is ‘delighted to be working with the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire and Haven on this exciting project. He stressed ‘100%’ of the 44 housing units proposed to be built in a new building off Route 1 on the church property would be work-force housing.
