The Union Project is a former church that has been restored and renovated into a community arts center.

In addition to office and classroom space, the Union Project's key facilities are the Great Hall, the Virgil King Atrium and the Eat UP Cafe.

Featuring three walls of stained glass windows, live acoustics perfect for instrumental and vocal music and a 21 by 23 stage, the Great Hall is the Union Project's largest space at 3360 square feet. Holding up to 250 people this space has become a popular venue for workshops, concerts, weddings and public gatherings.

An ideal space for small to medium community, business, religious or nonprofit gatherings, the Virgil King Atrium is a two-story half-circle room with historic plaster moldings, restored hardwood floors and comfortable furniture, can accommodate up to 45 people.

The Eat UP Cafe, partially staffed by students from the Union Project's Youth Barista Program and by neighborhood residents, is a popular gathering place.
