Donation Pledge to 12th Avenue Arts

| October 4, 2011
Caffe Vita will donate 10 percent of Capitol Hill coffee bar sales from the month of October to 12th Avenue Arts, a new Capitol Hill Housing (CHH) building to be constructed near 12th Avenue and East Pine Street. This mixed-use development will bring more than 80 affordable apartments, community meeting space, and permanently affordable performing arts space to the neighborhood.

Last Tuesday at Sole Repair, supporters and neighborhood business owners gathered to hear project updates and learn about the progress of the capital campaign (CHH’s first ever). Through a mix of funding sources including private donations, grants, tax credit, state programs and commercial bank loans, CHH is hard at work to secure the $38 million required for construction. The groundbreaking is slated for the summer of 2012, and the project is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2014.
For more information on 12th Avenue Arts or how you can support the capital campaign, get in touch with the kind people at Capitol Hill Housing.

Come learn about 12th Avenue Arts

| September 26, 2011

Tomorrow at Sole Repair there will be a neighborhood get together for people to learn more about 12th Avenue Arts. This project of Capitol Hill Housing will transform an East District police parking lot (pictured below) into a mixed-use development with affordable housing, community meeting space, retail, arts space, and underground parking for police vehicles. For years, Capitol Hill Housing has been working to make this project real, and back in June it was officially announced. We’re excited to hear the latest updates.

We hope to see you at Sole Repair tomorrow. And, it will be a chance to have a drink with Tim Keck and Jerry Everard!
