The East Montgomery County Improvement District Complex at 21575 Hwy. 59, Ste. 205, New Caney, will repurposed into a new event venue called The Atrium Center, according to a June 11 news release from the EMCID.

The venue will be able to be reserved for meetings, conferences, weddings, anniversary celebrations, birthday parties and community events. The 20-year-old building will also be improved to feature new carpet, event space furnishings and an enlarged outdoor space by the pond and fountains, according to the release.


“For 20 years, the EMCID Complex has served as mainly office space for us and others and has hosted many luncheons, weekend events, and community meetings,” EMCID President and CEO Frank McCrady said in the release. “While our building has been closed to the public for the last year, we’ve had time to assess the building, and we’re currently making repairs and improvements to the facility. We feel now is the time to reintroduce our venue to the public with a new emphasis on hosting events.”

The EMCID is booking the venue for events in 2022, but limited booking for this fall will be available after improvements are completed, according to the release. The district's complex is utilized by the EMCID, the Greater East Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce and detectives from the Montgomery County Constable's Office, according to EMCID. 281-354-5020. www.atriumcentertx.com
