Crap to become housing for seniors and disabled
From the Times Newsweekly:
[CB5] District Manager Gary Giordano told the board at last Wednesday’s meeting that the PSCH organization, which began construction of a group home located on Cypress Avenue between Cooper Avenue and Vermont Place, has informed the board of their intention to demolish the existing, incomplete structure.
Giordano stated that construction of the cinder-block building—which aims to house 19 individuals with psychiatric disabilities—stalled in recent years; the incomplete building has since been smeared with graffiti and invaded by both trespassers and vermin.
PSCH reportedly told Giordano and Board 5 Chairperson Vincent Arcuri that it will demolish the incomplete structure due to an architectural problem and replace it with a new structure that could offer both senior housing space and the designated space for developmentally disabled youths.
The district manager noted that the organization has not provided further updates about their plans in recent weeks.
