Here's a shot, taken today, of Mount Hope Housing Company's architecturally striking community center, which will open this summer. The center, on 175th Street at Walton Avenue, will serve up to 2,000 people at day. Later this year, a gymnasium will be built alongside. More here.

Work began in May and is expected to take 12-14 months. More here and here.
