Otay Ranch Branch Library
2015 Birch Road, Chula Vista, CA 91915
Group 4’s strategic facilities plan for the Chula Vista Public Library recommended taking advantage of opportunities to supplement service in east Chula Vista. One such opportunity is the City’s new partnership with the management of regional shopping center Otay Ranch Town Center. The City and ORTC management commissioned Group 4 to design the new mall branch to meet both parties’ goals, which include increasing community access to library services and increasing customer traffic to the shopping center.
The project transformed three retail spaces totaling 3,500 square feet into a vibrant branch library emphasizing popular materials and technology. In addition to significant financial support from shopping center management, the project also was made possible through generous donations from the Chula Vista Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Chula Vista Library. The grand opening of the new branch in April 2012 was attended by 2,700 enthusiastic community members.
