08-27 Community Hub Update

The construction site at 140 Joyce Avenue continues to be a busy place!
Have you had the chance to drive by? Here are a couple recent updates.

We've been informed that the John Howard Society expects to take ownership of the building September 10th. Visions move-in is scheduled for September 15th. We hope to have our first in-person Spirit Gathering soon after in our new home at the Community Hub on Joyce!

Emily and Shawn visited the Hub Friday. Outside, the stakes and markings for the sloped walkway to the entrance are a good sign that concrete will be poured soon!

Good news inside is that the drywall is now finished. Ceiling tires are installed and overhead lighting is complete. Today, the ceramic tile in the foyer/reception area is being installed. Many interior doors are hung. Upstairs, flooring is laid, and the cabinetry in the printer area, kitchenette and bathrooms is installed. The best part, though, is definitely the Multi-Purpose; it is a beautiful, open, welcoming space for our Spirit Gatherings!

Here's a video of Rev. Shawn at the Community Hub with an update (click on the image)

Highlights:

Construction delays during July have postponed the opening of the building by a month.

  • The bulk of the work to be finished is on the first floor of the Hub
  • Drywall installers are on-site as of yesterday after a few weeks delay
  • The front entrance needed redesign due to elevation levels
  • Installation of flooring, fixtures and cabinetry will continue once drywall is completed

We now anticipate August 31st completion
