Are there plans to connect it to the weird tower that's by itself?

Think they were sold long ago.

They must have done that right after the church closed. My bus went by there in the mid-80's and the plywood was in the window openings then.

I believe that the building closed as a Presbyterian church in the 1970s. Linwood Presbyterian was a thriving church in the 1950s, but the neighborhood was well into its decline by 1960. There was a massive bell in the main tower. Not sure if it is still there or not. The place does have a legacy; several nationally significant preachers learned their trade at Linwood Pres.
