|The facility is the first of its kind for the Sunnyside community with a large two-story indoor atrium connecting the health and multi-service areas. The new $25.8 million center replaces the nearby 30-year-old former Sunnyside Health Center and Sunnyside Multi-Service Center.
A large auditorium, conference rooms, classrooms will be available for use by community and non-profit organizations and there’s an on-site public charging station that houses six pay-and-go charge points for electric vehicles.
The center also has a quarter-mile walking trail open daily for exercise, a community garden for volunteers to help maintain and a fitness room.
The health and multi-service center will also showcase two original public art pieces created by local artists commissioned by the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (MOCA). The pieces will provide Houstonians and visitors an opportunity to engage with art in public spaces.
