The For the City Center is a physical representation of our mission to maximize and catalyze restoration efforts. The FTCC is a place for partnering nonprofits and other Austin-area organizations to reside, share meeting space, and join hands in the effort to maximize each others' work toward city renewal. Our hope is that by fostering collaboration, leveraging others' strengths, and simplifying the volunteer involvement process, we will be able to do immeasurably more together for Austin.
The building was originally a nursing home in St. John, but had been sitting mostly vacant prior to 2010. Construction of Phase I was completed in September 2010, and construction of Phase II began in March 2014, scheduled for completion in August 2014. The FTCC is now comprised of a combination of meeting, nonprofit tenant, and church space for The Austin Stone Community Church, who uses the space for Sunday services and other events. Phase II includes additional nonprofit offices, meeting rooms, and church space on the first and second floors and is critical to realizing the complete vision of seeing even greater collaboration and partnership.
Unison Development – a construction company we own – is managing the project. They exist to train and employ individuals with barriers to employment, and you can follow updates and progress of the project here.
We're grateful to be a part of reclaiming and reusing this space as a physical representation of the partnerships that make up our network of people, organizations, and churches working together all over Austin.
