Construction of a $200,000 church on Winthrop Street, behind the Indoor Athletic Building, will begin as soon as demolition of a three-story red brick tenement is completed, it was learned last night. The church, which will serve Lutheran students of Greater Boston, is being built by the congregation of University Lutheran Church.
The building is expected to be completed by October, according to the Reverend Mr. Edmund A. Steimle, Dv. '44. It will occupy approximately two-thirds of the footage on the south side of Winthrop, between Dunster and Boylston Streets.
