Designed by ARC Architects, the $8.5 million, 2-story, 29,000-square-foot building occupies a prominent site in Old Town Mukilteo, formerly the home of the Rosehill School. To respect the site’s original use, the stone archway from the school will be preserved and remain where it has stood for the last 81 years, welcoming the community to the new building.
The center features a multi-purpose/performance space, arts and crafts room, meeting spaces, game room, seniors room, and a fitness area with a dance/aerobics room and weights/cardio room.
The city awarded the construction contract to Allied Construction, Inc., which is completing the project in three phases. At the present time, a parking lot is being constructed along 3rd Street, which should be completed by mid-November. The second phase is constructing the community center, which should be ready for occupancy beginning 2011. The final phase encompasses demolishing the existing building where a plaza will be constructed, to be completed by March of 2011.
The Rosehill Community Center is located at 304 Lincoln Avenue.
