The building that houses The Alpine Shop on Kirkwood Road was once considered a home for worship space and offices for Greentree Community Church.
The church bought the building in 2010, but the St. Louis Business Journal now reports that Greentree has sold the property to a land developer for $3.15 million.
The newspaper reported Wednesday that Greentree sold the 2.2-acre site and building after it became clear that The Alpine Shop would renew its lease in the building, and that it would not be able to convert it to use as a church.
The church was formed in 1996 and houses its business offices at the corner of Monroe and Taylor avenues. Members of the church community worship at North Kirkwood Middle School.
The Business Journal reports that the church bought another parcel at 100 Kirkwood Place for $3.7 million from Gundaker Commercial Group in early February. Greentree sold The Alpine Shop space to Pioneer Land Co., the Business Journal reported.
