|owner:||Center for Elder's Independence|
The Center for Elder’s Independence (CEI), a non-profit organization providing senior care in the East Bay, is the primary tenant of this historic building located in downtown Oakland. We are renovating their present offices, expanding their ground floor lobby space and restoring the building façade.
CEI is expanding their lobby into the adjacent space of a shuttered night club on the ground floor. The 2,000 sq ft renovated ground floor will include a waiting room, reception desk, offices and conference room. Scope of work for the building includes renovations on second, third and fourth floors. All interiors received new carpet and paint finishes creating brighter and more cheerful work spaces. The elevator cab interior was also renovated with new flooring, walls, paneling, paint, ceiling treatment and lighting.
To restore the building façade on this 1923 building, the existing bar sign and canopy will be removed and the terra cotta and brick columns will be restored. The Façade restoration includes window restoration, an aluminum window wall system and two entrance doors at the ground floor.
