Plans are in the early stages to expand the physical size of a Burlington church.

Located at 1160 Blair Dr., members of Archangel Raphael and St. Marina Coptic Orthodox Church are considering redeveloping the site to expand the rear portion of the existing building.

The plans have not yet been presented to City Hall for consideration.

Initial project plans call for an expansion of the existing banquet hall, a new gym facility, an expanded place of worship and new office space.

The proposed redevelopment will be two storeys in height with a portion of the second storey containing floor area and the remaining space open to the roof. The existing two storeys at the front of the building will remain.

Other elements as contained in a pre-planning report indicate the site redevelopment will create 276 new parking spaces and the roof will be converted to a green energy system of solar panels.

The expanded place of worship will it shift to the rear of the building with a separate entrance. The existing place of worship will be converted into warehouse space.
