The proposed Civic Center will consolidate City administrative and public safety functions into a four-story building of approximately 130,000 square feet, including an 18,000- to 24,000-square-foot expansion space on the fourth floor. The selected site is on the current Community Services Building block (bound by First, Clay, Seminary, and Washington streets). The Civic Center will also include a new Fire Station #1 on the current Housing Authority site on the north side of Clay Street at Seminary Street. A 271-space parking garage will also be constructed on a surface parking lot at 1511 Clay Street (just west of the existing Clay Street Garage).
Conceptual renderings were presented in December 2017 as a starting point for a community discussion regarding design of the proposed Civic Center. Based on feedback received at community and stakeholder meetings, Plenary's team revised the designs, which are incorporated in the design review application submitted in April 2018 to the City and the public this spring.
