801 East Men's Shelter
St. Elizabeths East - Construction of New Men's Shelter
The Phase 1A 801 East Men’s Shelter is a low-barrier shelter program open to anyone who identifies as male years 18 and older. The program offers a hot dinner, access to case management staff, showers, and a bed on a nightly basis. The low-barrier shelter provides 380 beds every night and is open from 7 PM to 7 AM daily.
The proposed development of the Site includes the construction of a multi-level (five stories maximum) building with a partial basement to be utilized as a housing assistance center. The proposed building construction also includes deeper excavation for grade beams beneath the building and a deep foundation system. The future on-site building will be connected to the municipal water source.
This construction plan will include the excavation of soils at the Site. The depth of excavation is variable across the Site. Generally, the depth of excavation ranges from relatively shallow to 30 feet, and may include deeper depths associated with the deep foundation system.
Design began in Summer of 2019 and completed in Summer of 2020.
Construction began in Summer of 2020 with scheduled completion in Fall 2021.
