Feb. 7. By Dave Vieser. The long-time Habitat for Humanity office at 20310 North Main Street—originally a church—will be listed for sale, the non-profit confirmed.

There are already offers on the property which is just outside of the red-hot downtown Cornelius real estate market.

County records show the building and adjoining property carry a total tax value of $1.12 million—$616,000 for the building and $448,000 for land. The property is separate and distinct from the adjoining Restore property, which is not for sale.

Regardless, properties are transacting at much more than assessments would suggest.

Habitat offices will move into the Ada Jenkins Center (AJC) in Davidson.


The local Habitat operation was subsumed into Charlotte two years ago.

It’s all part of an agreement between Habitat and AJC. A portion of the proceeds generated by the sale of the building, will be used to refurbish the Habitat store next door, according to Habitat spokesman Peter Brown. The former church building has been Habitat’s local office since 1999

Moving in April

If all goes as planned, Habitat for Humanity will relocate its Office to the Ada Jenkins Center building, located at 212 Gamble Street, Davidson in April.

Habitat will occupy two large suites at AJC and share meeting space as well as support staff.

Prior to Habitat, the building was occupied by the International Church of the Four Square Gospel.
