Loyal Heights Community Center Stabilization

Updated: May 22, 2018

Loyal Heights Community Center Stabilization Work

Loyal Heights Community Center was identified in the 2016 Community Center Strategic plan for a major maintenance project focused on extending the life of the facility and increasing programming potential. A preliminary scope of the project is outlined below.  The final scope is expected to be refined throughout the design process based on more information about cost and needs.  Seattle Parks and Recreation planning staff are meeting with the community center Advisory Council to review the scope and schedule.

Building Envelope & Code Requirements (Highest Priority)

  • New roof and fall protection
  • Seismic upgrades
  • Exterior brick wall tuck pointing and sealing
  • Exterior window glazing and sealing
  • Accessibility improvements per ADA evaluation

Building Core & MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing - 2nd Priority)

  • Galvanized piping replacement
  • Security camera system
  • Simple public-address system

Space-Driven Improvements (3rd Priority)

  • Storefront and lobby upgrade
  • Kitchen remodel to update cabinets and appliances and improve accessibility
  • Flooring replacement in upstairs classrooms

Schedule

While we expect this work to close the center for a short time, a priority of the project will be to minimize the impact to programming.  We will post the construction schedule at the community center at least one month ahead of time.  

Planning: Spring - Winter 2017
Design: Winter 2017 - Spring 2019
Construction to take place at some point between Summer 2019 and Spring 2020
