Brooks + Scarpa Architects has released renderings of their proposal for an $80 million mixed-use community center in North Beach.
The 72nd Street Community Complex is meant to serve as a “living room” for the neighborhood, with community lounge space, active recreation areas, and a social gathering place.
The project is proposed to include:
The complex will replace a municipal surface parking lot.
The new parking garage is designed with the possibility of conversion to residential and office use when less parking is needed.
Solar panels on the roof would power the complex, while runoff rainwater would be collected for landscape irrigation.
The proposal from the design team that includes California-based Brooks + Scarpa, along with PCL and BEA as the design-build team, is one of three finalists for the city-owned property.
