Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco plans to sell its building at 150 Eureka Street and the adjacent four-unit apartment building at 138-140 Eureka Street.

Officials with the church, which has been based in the Castro neighborhood for decades, are talking to staff at First Congregational Church on Polk Street about sharing space.

MCC staff haven’t responded to repeated interview requests but have discussed their plans in church newsletters.

Katharine Holland, the Realtor tasked with selling the properties, said they’ll go on the market January 5 and offers will be taken January 21. The church building will be listed for about $2 million and the apartment building for approximately $1.5 million.

Holland didn’t know about the possibility of the residential building’s tenants being evicted.

“We never know, really,” she said. Most people “just want the steady income” of a rental property, but there are people, such as developers, who are “more aggressive,” she said. “I haven’t had any discussions with anybody about it right now.”

The building’s tenants, who’ve been notified about the approaching sale, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

FCC’s Reverend David Cowell said, “We are actually having a very serious discussion” with MCC about sharing space at the 1300 Polk Street site.

The Bay Area Reporter will have more about this story in the print edition available Wednesday, December 31.
