Sacramento Community Theater Renovation
The city is considering a partial renovation of the Community Theater at $40 million. A feasibility study in 2007 put the cost to do the full renovation at $75 million and was improbable. The new design is by Westlake Reed Leskowsky Architects and would add 18,000sf to the theater as well as changes to the exterior of the building. If the project is approved by the Council, design work would start in fall 2009 with construction beginning in 2013 and completion in 2015. The project would be done in phases scheduling around performing arts seasons (Sept. – May) with heavy construction in the summer months while the theater is closed.
