Regency Development Group and its exclusive sales and marketing agency @properties have announced the start of sales for The Revival, the adaptive re-use and conversion of a historic Ukrainian Village church into nine luxury condominiums.

Located at 921 N. Hoyne Street in Chicago, the development involves the complete exterior and interior renovation of the landmark St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, built in 1905. With the support of 2nd Ward Alderman, Brian Hopkins, Regency has preserved original historic details including the church’s pointed-arch windows and four-stage bell tower, incorporating them into the new residences.

The nine condominiums are priced from $579,000 to $1,299,000, and offer single-story and duplex floor plans with three to four bedrooms, two to three baths, 1,585 to 2,375 square feet of living space and indoor garage parking. A penthouse offers three bedrooms plus a den and media room, three baths and 2,715 square feet on two levels with 14- and 16-foot ceilings. Condominiums at The Revival are listed by @properties agents, Jodi Serio and Maria Troyanovsky.

Inside each home, original details such as arched windows and exposed brick complement upscale, contemporary finishes. Regency worked with a team of experienced church-restoration specialists, including Chicago-based Emily Carlson of Solstice Art Source, who has 20 years of experience in stained glass restoration. The framing carpenters for The Revival were brought in from Europe to work on the project.

The original St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church building was built by a congregation of German immigrants, and was designed by two of the city’s most accomplished church architects, Henry Worthmann and John Steinbach. The church boasts a Gothic Revival-style design.

The Revival sits on a quiet tree-lined street in the heart of Ukrainian Village, which earned the honor of “Hottest Neighborhood in the Country” in a 2016 national real estate poll. Known for local restaurants, bars and boutiques along Chicago Avenue and Damen Avenue, Ukrainian Village is an eclectic community and one of Chicago’s most historically in-tact neighborhoods.
