DC Mayor Bowser officially opened the 801 E. Men’s Shelter today with a ribbon cutting event. This flagship facility sets the standard for new shelters by incorporating three towers with separate housing areas for low-barrier, workforce, seniors and those with medical needs. The 88,000SF, 396 bed shelter is includes a daytime services center with a mail room, computer lab, barbershop, and laundry facility, plus a dining center that will offer culinary training opportunities. Men will be moving into this incredible facility this week. Imagine how these men will feel leaving the old shelter and walking over to the new one. What a dramatic improvement. We could not be more proud of this project. #DesignEmpoweringPeople.
Construction began on this new 3-story, wood construction building that includes 102 market-rate, senior living units with a mix of Assisted Living and Memory Care in approximately 98,000 gross square feet.
Taking advantage of sunny skies, warm temps and 8-10 knots of wind, the Wiencek team enjoyed a full day of sailing on the Chesapeake Bay to recharge after an unprecedented year of working remotely. Aboard the Woodwind Schooner with Captain Andy and his crew, we sailed out of Annapolis towards the historic Thomas Point Lighthouse then turned north and sailed under the Bay Bridge towards the Sandy Point Lighthouse and finally towards the Baltimore Harbor Lighthouse before returning to Annapolis. Was a perfect day of sailing and team bonding, as evident by all the smiling faces of our team.
The concrete work is finished. The project spans across the DC Metro tunnel requiring incredible ingenuity and creativity by the whole team to design the right structure. Today, we celebrated the “topping off” with the team to mark an important milestone. Only a few months from now we will celebrate the Grand Opening of this important project that will serve DC’s homeless population.
