Episcopal Diocesan Christ Church Cathedral
Christ Church Cathedral was founded in 1839 as Houston’s first religious congregation. Over the church’s 173 year history, Christ Church has made an impact across Houston’s religious landscape. Tellepsen has had the privilege of working with Christ Church on multiple building projects over the last 20 years. The latest project was an expansion that included a 5-story, 140,000 SF parking structure for 350 cars on the church’s existing downtown facility. The first floor of the garage was finished as offices for their mission outreach program for local homeless and displaced populace. The expansion also included a 2-story Diocesan office, 3-story, 15,000 SF youth building, a courtyard and renovation of 12,000 SF of existing administrative offices. The project also has a future phase for construction of a new cultural arts center and skywalk connecting the church’s east and west campuses.
