The three-story, 30,500-square-foot com­plex will of­fer com­mu­nity pro­gram­ming space in­clud­ing Av­enue’s head­quar­ters, realty of­fice and Home­own­er­ship Cen­ter, along with a health clinic and an early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion cen­ter. Ar­chi­tec­ture and en­gi­neer­ing firm Page de­signed the project, which is sched­uled to open in early 2020. Av­enue will re­ceive about $2.6 mil­lion for the con­struc­tion of Av­enue Cen­ter from the Greater
