The Capitol Park Community Center is a focal point of the Hope VI neighborhood of Capitol Park in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. Hope VI is a federal grant program administrated by HUD designed to replace "worn-out" public housing projects with neighborhoods that are less dense, more pedestrian-friendly and comprised of both market-rate and affordable housing. The Raleigh Housing Authority was awarded a thirty million dollar grant to demolish derelict Halifax Court, built in 1947, relocate its residents and construct a new revitalized community.

JDavis Architects was the Architect, Landscape Architect and Master Planner for Capitol Park. JDavis designed a mixed-use neighborhood of multiple housing types including a senior facility, a daycare center, offices with the Community Center and a wooded Park as the centerpiece.

The Community Center is an extension of the Park and serves as a gathering place for community events with a large Multipurpose Room, Kitchen and a Porch/Terrace for outdoor activities. The Center also has a Children's Learning Center, Administrative Offices and a Conference Space available for the use of residents.

The Community Center is a one story structure with significant basement storage. With a pitched standing seam metal roof, a skin of both brick and concrete masonry and commercial aluminum windows, the Center was designed to have the "presence" of a public building with a residential scale. The structure is steel frame with wood roof trusses. Basement and foundation walls are cast-in-place concrete and all walls above grade are masonry veneer on metal stud framing.

The Capitol Park Community Center is an open, inviting structure with a public elevation and entrance facing both the Neighborhood Park and a Drop-Off/Parking area. Since the Center was completed, it has served as an ideal venue for community parties, meetings, celebrations and events.
