Northwest Florida Daily News reports that Corvias broke ground on a new 10,000-square foot community center at Hurlburt Field:

“This is the final step in a series of innovations and modernizations across Hurlburt Field that are designed to improve the quality of life of military families and serve as a gathering place for residents while enriching the feeling of community,” Corvias founder John G. Picerne said at the groundbreaking ceremony.

Also speaking at the ceremony was Air Force Col. Michael Curry, vice commander of the 1st Special Operations Wing, the host unit at Hurlburt Field.

We strive to ensure that Hurlburt Field is a place our airmen and families are proud to call home,” Curry said. He called the new community center “a cornerstone of camaraderie and companionship for those who work so tirelessly in the defense of our nation.”

…Among the community center’s amenities will be a media area including public computers, a multi-purpose room for resident events, a club room with an open kitchen, a fitness room and a half-court basketball court.

Outside the community center will be a swimming pool with a pavilion, a full-size basketball court, a playground and a full outdoor kitchen and patio.

…During the past several years, Corvias has built 263 homes at Hurlburt Field, and will complete an additional 145 homes over the next two years.
