Magnolia Community Center Stabilization

Updated: March 20, 2024

Community Center Stabilization

Magnolia 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.

Work includes roof replacement and structural/seismic enhancements for the gym, roof access, fall restraints, structural improvements, window replacement/upgrade for multipurpose rooms, hallway and front entry floor replacement, restroom remodel, accessibility improvements, wheelchair lift between lobby and gym, electrical upgrades, exit signage, ventilation improvements, and kitchen remodel. 

SPR had a successful bid opening for the Magnolia Community Center Stabilization Project with five bidders. The City of Seattle is reviewing the contractor with the lowest bid and working on executing the contract. We anticipate getting notice to proceed in late May/ early June to start construction as soon as school lets out for the summer.

Construction is planned to start in late spring 2024. The facility will be closed for a minimum of a year during construction for the extensive building and accessibility upgrades.
