Welcome to the Clifton Center !
Life at 2117 Payne Street – after the Clifton Center
As most of you are aware, the Clifton Center’s use of St. Frances of Rome’s former school building at 2117 Payne Street will be ending on December 31, 2017. It’s been a great run of 22+ years that included renovations of the theatre, addition of the elevator and new lobby, new HVAC systems and other modernization – all possible with generous donor support. But the best part has been our role as a catalyst and partner in the revitalization of our beloved Clifton community and the Frankfort Avenue corridor. This has truly served as a welcoming gathering place where people, the arts, culture and ideas have come together to enrich us all!
The new tenant, Holy Trinity School Parish – Clifton Campus, will begin its tenure on January 1. Their plans include developing a Catholic Elementary School for children with learning differences. Holy Trinity is happy to be leasing space to several of the long standing tenants of the Clifton Center. They will occupy the third floor, as well as the lower level. Additionally, their plans include and making some improvements to the facility beginning with replacement of the stage (and basketball-back stage) flooring.
The good news is that the Eifler Theatre and Reception Hall will continue to be available for community use. And our very own Ann Drury will continue as Community Liaison and Building Manager!
