At left is the five-story office complex scheduled to open Sept. 1. Developer Donates Site City Selects Location for Montrose Library By Pete Diamond Montrose Voice Staff Reporter Thanks to an $800,000 donation from an area property developer, Montrose may get its own branch library after all. Mayor Kathy Whitmire announced March 12 that developer John P. Hansen has given the sanctuary ofthe former Central Church of Christ to the city for use as the Montrose branch library. The donation, formally accepted at last week's City Council meeting, lays to rest a several months long query as to where the much needed branch library would be located. Initially, the city had considered leasing the church's sanctuary and several classrooms or building a new $1.2 million facility on city-owned property at Mandell and Richmond. According to Jack Sheridan, press lia- sion for Hansen, several commercial uses for the church were considered, including leasing the property to a theater, but that Hansen finally decided "a library would be best for the neighborhood and the city" and that it represented "an element of stability for the neighborhood." While the city has accepted the donation, it may still be at least 18 months before the library opens, according to Len Radoff, chief of branch services for the The building which formerly housed the Central Church of Christ will be used for the new Montrose branch library (Pete Diamond photo) Houston Public Library. He explained that in addition to adding a second floor in the sanctuary, other alterations would be needed, including leveling the church floor and making the building accessible to the handicap. When the renovations are completed, Radoff said the first floor of the nearly 14,000 square foot library will likely include circulation and work areas, a Midtown Video 2043 SW Freeway at Shepherd 522-2805 Your 24 Hour Video Store Video XXX Movies Super Selection of Gay Flicks Wide Selection Regular XXXX Good Selection of General Movies We Rent-Sell-Trade-Buy No Membership— No Hassle THE BEST LITTLE GUEST HOUSE IN TOWN NWOIfEANS REASONABLE NIGHTLY & WEEKLY RATES PRIVATE BATHS FREE PARKING FOR RESERVATIONS CALL (504) 566-1177 1118 URSULINES STREET, NEW ORLEANS, LA 70116 children's section and an area for current adult books and magazines. The second floor will be the main adult level and will house the stacks and library offices. Opening a branch library in Montrose has been part of a long-range goal of the library system, Radoff said. He added that Montrose is one ofthe oldest parts of Houston that is still without a branch library. Hansen, who is planning a $10 million, five-story office complex adjacent to the church, will retain ownership ofthe two- story facility adjoining the church. New Montrose Office Building Plans Sept. Opening The Campanile, a five story office building located at 4100 Montrose, will open its doors to John Hansen Investment Builders in September. According to Malinda Russek, an employee of the investment builders, the office building will also house a complete tax and law library for the tenants. The 75,000 square foot office building will also have surface parking. Across the street in the 4200 block of Montrose the sanctuary of the Central Church of Christ Church will house the new Houston city library. The educational portion of the church building will have retail stores and a restaurant. "One of the unique things about the office building is its bell tower," Russek said. She also said that "Campanile" means bell tower in Italian. The Hansen developers have other commercial developments in Houston including Riverway at Woodway and Loop 610 where there are several office buildings and the Inn on the Park. The company also developed the Plaza Medical Center at 1200 Binz and the Pen Oak Park, another office development. The company will be locating all of its offices in the new building Sept. 1. "We like the Montrose area and the company is interested in developing along Montrose Boulevard," she added.
