Lobby expansion under way for Alki Community Center

If you’ve been to Alki Community Center, you know its lobby is a bit snug. That situation is finally about to improve, reports Liesa Rose, president of the Alki Advisory Council:

I have exciting news to share. After a 3-year effort of ideas, design, bids, and negotiations, Alki Community Center’s lobby will be expanded slightly. Construction by a Seattle Parks Dept. crew started on Tuesday 4/23. This project was my idea and supported by the Alki Advisory Council, Associated Recreation Council and the Seattle Parks Dept.

The current exterior roof overhang space will be enclosed to add about 300 square feet. We hope the community will enjoy the new space to sit, read, play games, and chat with friends.

Attached is a picture of the start of construction and 2 PDFs of the designs showing the new exterior and new interior. The entry doors will be moved to the west. Construction will be funded by the Alki Advisory Council / ARC and the Seattle Parks and Recreation Dept.

We hope this project will be finished at the end of May.
