PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh’s Historic Review Commission says the Albright United Methodist Church building merits consideration for historic status.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1T0G50Q ) the commission will hold a public hearing and a vote on March 2.

Preservation planner Sarah Quinn says the 110-year-old stone church meets several of the city code’s criteria for historic designation. She cited architectural integrity, along with its style and design.

Ross Development proposed building a retail site there with a drive-thru feature that the zoning board denied. That decision is under appeal.

Attorneys for its owner, the Western Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church, say the building is under a sales agreement and spoke against the historic nomination.
