Profits are used to enhance products and services or returned to the Membership, adding value to the community and enhancing pride of ownership among members.



The project designed by Taylor_Smyth architects consists of a major facelift for an aging existing building. Thoroughly renovated, the building was transformed, both from the inside and the outside. The elevation facing oncoming traffic on the busy one-way street, which used to be mostly solid, is now a luminous composition of channel glass and clear glazing that embodies the openness of the AWCCU to the larger community.
