Following an intensive period of public comment last month on the design of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Community Center Project (CCP), architects have completed the first phase of the building's design, and the center's board of directors will present the revised design at a public meeting this Monday, November 2 in San Francisco.
Board President Brenda Barnette said the center's architects will continue to complete many details of the design through March, but the work displayed on Monday will reflect the final overall design of the building, which includes a newly constructed facility adjacent to the existing Fallon Building.
"Based on feedback from our public review of the center design in September, it is clear that people are very happy with the direction the project is taking," said Barnette. We have made a number of refinements to the design based on comments by neighbors and LGBT community members and are excited to present what we believe is a design befitting our community on November 2."
Barnette also said that the city's Landmarks Advisory Board last Wednesday, October 21, approved details of the restoration of the Victorian that's incorporated into the center. That approval, supported by the preservationist Friends of 1800 Market Street, signifies that the Fallon Building is being faithfully restored. The landmarks board also approved a resolution stating that the design of the new portion of the center is compatible with and sensitive to the Victorian.
Construction of the CCP is scheduled to begin in September 1999.
MONDAY'S MEETING STARTS AT 6 PM AT 101 GROVE STREET, ROOM 300.
