Habitat For Humanity event Thursday in Council Bluffs
October 31st, 2012 by Ric Hanson
A “Re-purpose” ground breaking ceremony will be held Thursday on two historic implement buildings in Council Bluffs. Habitat For Humanity Executive Director Gina Primmer, says one of their buildings will become their “Re-Store.” The “Re-store” will essentially be a retail outlet that sells new and used building materials, appliances, furniture and more, for do-it-yourself projects. Both buildings are historic 1880’s structures which will be fully restored to their original conditions.
The other building at 12th Avenue and South Main will become HFH’s new office. If all goes as planned, both buildings will be open by Nov. 2013. Construction is expected to begin Feb. 1st, 2013, with occupancy slated for September 1st, 2013, and a grand opening at about this same time next year.
