San Leandro Senior Community Center & EOC
13909 E. 14th Street , San Leandro, CA 94578
Group 4 provided comprehensive planning and design services for the 20,000 sf San Leandro Senior Center, from needs assessment and site selection/feasibility studies to full design and construction administration services. The program and key design goals – including functionality, flexibility, accessibility, and efficiency – grew from community input and priorities, including strong participation by the city’s Senior Commission.
The center’s contemporary design creates an attractive, warm, and transparent landmark facility with an engaging street presence. A strong indoor/outdoor connection welcomes passersby and incorporates significant existing site elements such as an allée of mature trees. Major activity spaces include a main hall for up to 450 people, arts and crafts space, a game/social room, an exercise/dance space, classrooms, and a computer lab. The center is also designed to function as an emergency operations center.
