The Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) is holding a virtual opening event for its newest building, Hobson Place, on Wednesday, October 7 at 10 a.m. Rushing is providing mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering for the site as well as energy services and lighting design.

Hobson Place will include 177 housing units as well as a clinic to serve tenets and the wider community. The clinic will be established as a unique partnership with Harborview Medical Center to “meet the complex needs of people living with disabilities who have experienced the longest periods of homelessness,” according to DESC.
