On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, Walnut Way Conservation Corp. celebrated the opening of the Innovations and Wellness Commons (aka The Commons), 1609 West North Avenue. The new 5,470 square foot space is a community-driven, cooperatively funded multi-use commercial development.

The new building includes space for eight health and wellness providers. Seven of the eight spaces are already committed. It also has a 2,000 square foot rooftop space for meetings and socializing. The addition of the health care providers is meant to address a significant need in Lindsey Heights.

According to Walnut Way executive director Antonio Butts, “The opportunity to be able to access resources that allow folks to take self-care to a deeper level is very important.” Among those in attendance were Mayor Tom Barrett and Alderman Russell Stamper.
