Master architects (SmithGroup) for the Community Civic Campus project are presenting updates on the exterior and park design for the Main Campus to South San Francisco residents and city commissions, culminating in a presentation to the City Council on June 12, 2019.  

The new Library and Parks & Recreation building is on a 6.5-acre site bounded by El Camino Real, Chestnut Avenue, and Antoinette Lane. The building is three-levels and located along El Camino Real. Approximately one and one-half acres are set aside for a park and will accommodate the completion of Centennial Trail. The project development includes approximately 220 parking spaces. The Library, Parks & Recreation, and Community Theater/Council Chamber Building portion of the project is expected to cost about $120 million.

The Main Campus building design is an elegant, forward thinking civic presence for the City of South San Francisco.  The signature glass-enclosed three-level structure unifies three important program functions into a single building: Library, Parks & Recreation, and the City Council Chamber.

The outdoor park has an iconic nature in keeping with the building design. Different than anything available in South San Francisco, it will serve as many communities as possible, and include amenities for all ages and abilities.
