A congregation has acquired a 6,340-square-foot church structure in Passaic County, in a deal arranged by Sheldon Gross Realty.
In a news release, the firm announced the sale of the property at 471 Morrissee Ave. in Haledon. I Am the Church of the Living God Deliverance Temple Inc. was the buyer.
Sheldon Gross Realty Vice President Eric Weston managed the transaction, touting the building’s distinctive stained glass windows and front, exterior wall of orange brick. He said the church will continue to be used for religious services.
“I’d met the pastor in advance, so I had a strong sense of what they were looking for as soon as we began working together,” Weston said. “This Morrissee Avenue property is terrific, because it’s quite clearly a church — so my client won’t need to invest significant time and financial resources into giving it the desired atmosphere. In many ways, it’s ready to go.”
He also noted the building’s location just around the corner from the junction of North Haledon and Belmont avenues, Haledon’s two main roads. In addition, the property is a two-minute drive from the campus of William Paterson University.
