“Fifteen years in the making, ECCL is one of the nation’s first joint-use facilities where City and School cooperatively occupy a shared site.
So novel was the City-School district partnership that it required state legislation to modify the California Educational Code, which prior to enacment restricted nonschool use of school buildings.
School Board President John Affeldt stated, Communities across the nation will be looking to Emeryville to emulate our unique partnership.”

Extensive community outreach & engagement were incorporated from the initial planning. This complex city wide block was designed and built with the diverse users of the city in mind. With a tight schedule, we broke up the deliverables into multiple packages for a fast-track navigation through DSA.
