The Green @ UTEC
UTEC has always believed in creating inspiring, comfortable spaces for our young adults and the community, and now we are expanding that to a new outdoor area!
The Green @ UTEC is a new outdoor event space to host a variety of programs open to the public. The new outdoor space will support jobs for our young adults through our food services and events management work and serve as an outdoor play area for our 2Gen Early Childhood Education Center.
The 7,500 square feet park space with new sidewalks along Hurd Street and Warren Street is expected to be completed Fall 2021.
A Space for Everyone
- The front of the space is public space and will be used as a public park for the neighborhood, as well at function space for UTEC scheduled functions and events
- The back of the Green space “astro turf and decking area” – is UTECs private space to be used for functions, events, and 2Gen outdoor play area.
- Far end “concrete space and top of container” will be available for staff seating and meeting space
- UTEC will maintain and upkeep all areas, public and private
