The new annex provides the existing center with an additional large multi-purpose space, and separate recreation, art, and computer rooms. The building also hosts a warming kitchen, storage space, utility room, and administrative office. The project also included 23 additional parking spaces.

Through the added program space, the Sandra DeLucca Developmental Center will be able to introduce a new Active Adult 55+ program and increase the capacity to provide additional programs and services to the Kinloch neighborhood for adults with and without developmental disabilities. Staff will be targeting inclusive active adult programming, the first to be offered in City of Miami Parks.

With the state of the art technology incorporated into the design and furnishing of the facility, programming will be offered to allow increased computer skills and interactive stimulation that engage participants for social, cognitive and physical exercises.
