New Construction


Chicago Neighborhoods Initiative (CNI), By The Hand Club For Kids (BTH), Intentional Sports and Grace and Peace Church are coming together to create an inspirational complex in the north Austin community. Present Future Architects collaborated with all organizations to design this new community center that will contain a full sized FIFA regulation indoor turf soccer field, multiple basketball & volleyball courts, batting cages, performance training, physical therapy, large multi-functional assembly room and classrooms for K‑12 after-school tutoring. There are also outdoor athletic spaces and playgrounds for additional community involvement. The project has garnered the attention of many high-ranking government officials and investment from the Chicago Fire Football Club and Jason Heyward of the Chicago Cubs. Construction broke ground in September of 2021 and completion is scheduled for late 2022.
