Open House on the Final Design Concept for the Housing Resource Center Scheduled for Dec. 17

Thursday, December 11, 2014

The public is invited to see the final design concept for the Housing Resource Center at an open house on Wednesday, Dec. 17, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Academy, 5100 Cleveland St. During the open house, representatives from the Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation and Waller, Todd & Sadler Architects will be on-hand to answer questions and provide a brief presentation on the final design concept.

In February, the city contracted local firm Waller, Todd & Sadler Architects for the formal design of the Housing Resource Center to be located at 104 N. Witchduck Road. The Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation worked with city agencies, service providers, the faith community and other stakeholders to determine the types of facilities to be offered at the center; this process also included a design charrette in May. The final design concept is the result of the charrette and a public input process, which included Virtual Town Hall and a public meeting held this summer.
