Griffin was recently chosen to provide construction management services for the development of a new 27,780-square-foot community center and accompanying outdoor recreational facilities on a 16.5-acre project site in the City of Santa Clarita. Phase I will include improvements to Mint Canyon Channel, from an open channel to a double reinforced concrete box with drainage improvements and an underground stormwater infiltration system.
Proposed outdoor improvements include open play areas, outdoor market, an event stage area, basketball half-court, an events garden, shade structures, outdoor restroom building, and a perimeter trail. Indoor spaces will include a multipurpose room, gymnasium, classrooms, catering and teaching kitchen, fitness room, staff offices, reception lobby, and supporting uses such as restrooms and storage areas.
Once completed, the new community center’s indoor and outdoor amenities will be open to the public for recreational activities, community programs, classes, community and fundraising events. The new community center and park are expected to open to the public in spring 2021.
