WEST HOLLYWOOD—The city of West Hollywood is inviting eligible architect firms to submit proposals for park design utilities as part of the West Hollywood Park Master Plan Implementation Phase II Project.

 

The Phase II project was approved in early June by the West Hollywood Council, and as the last phase of the Park Master Plan, the project will incorporate new additions to the park's layout, including a new 70,000 square-foot recreation center with a gymnasium, a competition and a recreation swimming pool on the rooftop, locker rooms, parking, and offices. Also included are a new 12,000 square-foot Parks & Recreation Building, a 6,000 square-foot Bridge Building that will connect the Parks & Recreation Building with the Recreation Center, and a new improved park green space, according to the news release.

 

In addition, a National AIDS Monument is planned to be located near the entrance to the West Hollywood Library, which was completed two years ago in Phase One of the Park Master Plan. The monument will be designed with a physical structure that may be used as a public gathering space, and it will memorialize the AIDS epidemic from the West Hollywood perspective. Three elements will also be a part of the monument: a “Memorialize” element that seeks to remember those we have lost, a “Tribute” element that praises those who paved the way for hope, a cure and advanced treatment, and an “Inform” element that outlines the current state of the epidemic and how things are headed.

 

Once architectural and engineering teams are chosen for the project, the implementation of the planned renovations and additions will take approximately 18 to 20 months.

 

Architects interested in assisting must submit their proposals no later than 3 p.m. on Wednesday, August 28 to the City Clerk's office at 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood.

 

For more information on the project, those interested may call 323-848-6400; for more information on the proposal request, contact Jeffrey Huffer at 323-848-6846 or at jhuffer@weho.org. For the deaf and hard of hearing, please call 323-848-6496.
