“Current Library Re-Use Opportunities” Survey
A new 15,000-square-foot new Mission Hills-Hillcrest Branch Library will replace the current 3,850-square-foot Mission Hills Branch Library located at 925 West Washington Street and built in 1961. The San Diego Architectural firm Mosher Drew designed the project schematic, which was further developed by the C.W. Driver Design/Build team professionals, Manuel Oncina Architects and Ferguson Pape Baldwin Architects. The City purchased the new library site at West Washington and Front and construction began in Spring 2017. The new $21+ Million library is scheduled to open in early-2019.
The current library is located at 925 West Washington on the western edge of the busy Mission Hills business district. An icon of this historic and bustling neighborhood, the 3,850-square-foot building is located on three parcels of land which total approximately 7,600-square-feet. It also serves a growing population from communities surrounding Mission Hills. Despite its small size, the library offers many educational programs for patrons of all ages. Several book clubs meet regularly at the library and musical performances are scheduled throughout the year. The building will be vacated when the new library opens in early-2019.
The Mission Hills Business Improvement District is interested in learning what Mission Hills’ residents and business owners would like to see happen with the 3,850-square-foot space when the old library vacates. Your feedback is important to us.
This survey will be open for responses July 1 through July 21, 2018 and will only take a couple minutes to complete.
