Better Housing Coalition will be resubmitting the revised plans for the Citadel of Hope project to CAR today, to be on the agenda for Tuesday, January 24. (I will link to the document when they are available.)

The request for the Certificate of Appropriateness from CAR was denied at the November 22, 2016 meeting, based on the massing of the 3 story building on Jessamine Street. In response to this and after community feedback, the new design features 3 smaller buildings on Jessamine Street rather than the longer single building initally proposed.

The Citadel of Hope building was constructed in 1923 as the House of Happiness, a community center, by The City Circle of the Baptist Woman’s Missionary Union. Even as the southern side of that block of Venable has seen an amazing turnaround over the past 12 years, the Citadel of Hope has been a target for graffiti, and suffered a fire in 2011.

The property was purchased by Better Housing Coalition in 2014, with word coming of plans for the property in late 2015.
