Project Description:

The new, two-story school is to be constructed in the Historic West Adams residential neighborhood of Los Angeles within a commercial area developed in the 1930s. It is designed to accommodate 875 students from kindergarten to fifth grade with a program area of 68,197 square feet. A library will be located at the intersection of the major streets bordering the site. With windows twenty-four feet high, this signature architectural element serves a visual anchor for the school. JDBA designers utilized a broad base of experience with private sector commercial design to ensure this new school will enhance the existing commercial character. The project is located on a 3.6-acre site that is bordered by Washington Boulevard in the north, Third Avenue in the west, housing in the south, and Arlington Avenue in the east.
