The CRDA entered into an agreement for a $4.1 million purchase package with the John Brooks Recovery Center (JBRC), a non-profit addiction treatment facility. The purchase includes JBRC’s properties at 1315 Pacific Avenue and 20 South Tennessee Avenue. As part of the transaction, the CRDA will provide an additional $4 million in benefits to renovate and relocate the outpatient programs to 1923 Bacharach Boulevard in Atlantic City and the Pleasantville Shopping Center.
At the February 2017 meeting, the CRDA Board granted an extension until May 1, 2017 for the John Brooks Recovery Center to finalize its funding commitments for the construction of its planned off-island inpatient facility. Under the revised construction schedule, the new inpatient facility is expected to be completed by March 1, 2019. The Board also agreed to advance a total of $3.0 million from the previously approved loan to assist with hard and soft costs related to the construction of the Inpatient facility.
