This is the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Residence A. It was built in 1921 and was altered in those early years to function as classroom space for art programs. Other than this, there were no known restoration or renovation projects in the subsequent years.
The building has been vacant since 2000, and through the efforts of Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell, over $1.8 million dollars was allocated to kick-start this project. While the search for additional funding continues, we will address any structural and water leak issues.
The team for this project is composed of:
Project Restore - Administrator and Restoration Manager
Bureau of Engineering - Project Manager and Architect
Department of Cultural Affairs - Curator and Operator
Department of General Services - General Contractor
Department of Recreation and Parks - Owner and Landscape Maintenance
