The site is adjacent to the existing Filipino Community Center, where residents will have access to programming including a food bank, health screening, and cultural programs. The building will also provide common spaces and a bistro for residents; the ground floor will be occupied by the Innovative Learning Center, which will provide digital access for young people including Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Math programs for teens and young adults.
