Community leaders such as Kevin Bell, the senior vice president of The Woda Group, Inc., Pastor Donte' Hickman and members of the Southern Baptist Church will join together at the construction site Monday morning and discuss what is next for the building.

The construction of the center started back in October 2014 and is supposed to replace a blighted block with 61 units of affordable senior housing and services, counseling and job training space.

The Southern Baptist Church built another senior housing complex in 2002 called the Cole Grant Higgs Senior Housing Complex.
