I wanted to give a public thank you to the folks at Jayson Architects for creating an outstanding design for the new Downtown Branch Library. The architects asked for feedback from the community, and worked hard to successfully incorporate what we want! People asked for more public gathering space downtown, so this design incorporates a beautiful, spacious, outdoor 5000-square-foot rooftop garden. It will be an ideal place for events, programs, meeting friends, reading a book or working on a laptop! The design also features tons of natural light, acoustic soundproofing, a teen room and an exciting children’s area.
As part of the mixed-use aspect of the project, many of us want more affordable housing for low-income residents, and the architects delivered. Their new design features over a hundred units of 100% affordable housing!
It is wonderful to see how this project keeps getting better and better. Thank you for listening to our community, Jayson Architects!
