OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Construction will begin early next month on a new, smaller Salvation Army center near 36th and Cuming Streets in Omaha.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1IqJMTC ) that the Salvation Army recently reached its $23.6 million capital campaign goal for the new building.

The new 70,000-square-foot center, called Renaissance Village, will be less than half the size of the current 110-year-old building, but still will house most of the programs that operated there.

The new building is expected to open in late 2016. Workers won’t tear down the existing building until Renaissance Village is complete.
