Document Description
The proposed Project involves the demolition of the existing Downtown Main Library as well as removal of the existing open space plaza located in front of the library. A new and expansed Downtown Main Library anticipated at approximtately 100,000 square feet will replace the exisitng Downtown Main Library building, parking and entry plaza area. The Project site is fully developed and currently occupied by a 61,420 square foot library and an approximately 32,000 square foot surface parking lot. The Downtown Main Library is typical of the New Formalism style of architecture. The Library is square and symmetrical in plan, sitting on a broad wide base, topped by a wide overhang of the flat roof that acts like a comice with sculptural concrete screen, tan colored brick walls and still has the original light fixtures. The main (southwest facade is marked by a curved plate canopy over the entrance.
