Queen Anne Community Center Stabilization

Updated: May 22, 2018

Queen Anne Community Center Stabilization Work

Queen Anne 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/repaired roof and fall protection
  • Code signage, accessibility, and emergency exit signage
  • Restroom remodel on main floor to improve accessibility and provide all-gender use
  • South entrance accessibility improvements

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

  • Unused floor drain capping and installation of trap primers
  • Fire alarm system upgrade
  • Galvanized piping replacement
  • Simple public-address system

Space-Driven Improvements (3rd Priority)

  • Pottery room VAT removal, ventilation, remodel to create more space
  • Kitchen remodel to update and improve accessibility


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
