​​​​​HOUSTON - A Houston nonprofit began the demolition of its nearly 50-year-old building and will soon break ground on a state-of-the-art building.

Recenter, a Houston-area nonprofit, is tearing down its two facilities at 3805 Main St. and 3809 Main St. in Midtown with the total demolition process set to wrap up mid-December, a Recenter spokesperson said. Recenter's facilities at 3805 Main and 3809 Main totaled around 18,000 sf.

Recenter also owns a vacant plot of land at 3815 Main. A 50,500-sf facility will be constructed on all three plots of land, which total half an acre.

The new facility will assume a single address of 3809 Main St. The total cost of the project is roughly $12 million, said Recenter CEO Fred Dailey. 

The funds were raised as part of a $30 million capital campaign; the remaining $18 million will go toward supporting Recenter's day-to-day operations and services, Dailey said. To date, $23 million has been raised.

The nonprofit plans to break ground on in March 2016, and the facility should be complete and operational by spring 2017. 

The nonprofit caters to homeless men and women struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. The new facility will include housing space, a commercial kitchen and dining hall, GED education space and a nonmedical detox intake area.

Another Houston-area nonprofit is revamping its Midtown digs. Crime Stoppers of Houston broke ground on its new $10 million, 30,000-sf headquarters in Midtown on October 30.
