The Ilan-Lael Center, James Hubbell’s latest design addition to the Hubbell property in Santa Ysabel is well under construction. We have created a construction time line here that will be updated throughout construction. Initially only 1 of the 3 buildings of the center is being built until the Ilan-Lael Foundation has enough funds to complete the project. If you want to keep up on more detailed information, the Ilan-Lael Foundation is also posting construction updates as they happen at ilanlaelfoundation.org
