Recenter Plans To Consolidate Into New Building
Recenter, a nonprofit that serves homeless men and women struggling with drug addiction, is tearing down its two 1960s-era buildings and will soon break ground on a new facility. The two buildings slated for demolition are at 3805 Main St and 3809 Main St in Midtown. The knock-down process will finish next week, according to the Houston Business Journal.
Recenter’s new 50k SF complex will include housing, a commercial kitchen and dining hall, a GED education space, and a nonmedical detox area. It'll be constructed on the footprints of the old buildings, as well as a vacant lot at 3815 Main that the charity owns. All told, that’s around half an acre, and the new address will be 3809 Main St.
The rebuild will cost about $12M. Groundbreaking will be in March 2016 and is projected to complete by Q2 2017. [HBJ]
