The new Shannon Community Center includes approximately 19,700 square feet of space and provides for a new banquet hall for approximately 300 people, a catering and demonstration kitchen, multipurpose rooms, two preschool classrooms, staff offices and support spaces.
The building was designed by Dahlin Group Architecture. The traditional mission style design of the building incorporates a terra cotta colored roof tile, cream-colored walls, sandstone colored base, dark window mullions and green stone accent tiles. The building interior has similar finishes and colors that mimic the terra cottas and creams in the wall colors, carpets and tiles. The final design is in accordance with the City's Green Building Ordinance which requires that all City buildings with a construction cost of $3 million or higher be built to a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification standard.
