Rosedale Community Center and Library
New Building Multi-Purpose Recreation / Community Center / 26,200 SF / Washington, DC
The new Rosedale Community Center and Library will replace the current dilapidated building, rejuvenating this neighborhood with improved community amenities. The community center will have a gymnasium, meeting rooms for general purposes as well as for the teen and senior age groups, a community kitchen, and fitness room. Outside of the building users will find a new swimming pool, new artificial turf field, basketball court and playground.
The design is straightforward and is comprised of three rectangular buildings, a gymnasium wing, community center wing, and a library wing with a central entry point. The community center wing will be housed under a green roof and provide storm water retention and filtration, the 9,000 sf green roof will help reduce the heat island effect providing points for LEED certification. The new building, designed to LEED Gold standards, is intended to provide a modern facility to foster activities such as continuing education, arts and crafts, indoor sports as well as neighborhood meetings and events.
The Rosedale Community Center and Pool is located at 1701 Gales St., NE.
