  8. 8. Eleva/ng  the  Quality  of  Life  in  the  District   CHALLENGES  WITH  THE  CURRENT  LOCATION  (BUILDING  9)   Broken  Window   Standing  Water   The   shelter   area   is   in   fair   condi9on,   while   the   unoccupied   por9ons   of   the   building   are   in   extremely   poor  condi9on.         It   is   extremely   challenging   to   properly   maintain   the   unoccupied  por9ons  of  Building  9.       For  example,  when  a  window  breaks  or  the   roof  leaks,  it  may  not  be  seen  for  months   (or   longer)   due   to   the   por9ons   of   the   building  being  unoccupied.       Common  current  &  recent  hazards:   •  Roof  leaks   •  Steam  leaks   •  Plumbing  leaks   •  Broken  windows   •  Vermin    
  9. 9. BUILDING  27   This  30,000  SF,  3  story  building  is  in   good   condi9on   and   was   vacated   and  abated  in  2013.         The   por9ons   proposed   for   the   Tubman   Shelter   at   the   1st   &   2nd   floors   were   previously   used   as   office  space.      The  lower  level  will   remain  vacant,  the  1st  floor  will  be   for  the  shelter,  and  a  por9on  of  the   2nd   floor   will   be   used   as   DHS   staff   offices.     No   exterior   modifica9ons   or   expansions  are  proposed.
