Area residents are invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the renovation and expansion of the Northern Wake Senior Center (NWSC) on Friday, June 15, at 10 a.m. The event will take place on the grounds of the current facility, located at 235 E. Holding Ave.
The groundbreaking will include a brief program and the ceremonial shoveling of the dirt, followed by a reception with light refreshments. Among those scheduled to offer remarks are Wake Forest Mayor Vivian Jones and Resources for Seniors President Kristen Brannock. Renderings and floor plans of the building will also be on display.
Focus Design Builders is expected to begin construction on the new and improved 18,000 square-foot facility in June.
In addition to an expanded site area, more than 50 new parking spaces and an additional driveway entrance/exit, the renovated and expanded NWSC will include a new entrance vestibule, the addition of exercise and multi-purpose rooms and the replacement of the roof.
A 2014 Wake Forest Bond Referendum initiative, the NWSC renovation and expansion is expected to be completed in the spring of 2019. The total cost is approximately $4 million.
