Roosevelt Elementary School
As one of the largest and oldest elementary schools in the district,
Roosevelt was completely rebuilt to better serve the needs of the growing student community.
The compact site required the innovative use of space, which included a playground built above a
ground-level parking garage and a multipurpose room with a stage and audio/visual alcove.
To honor the “art deco” architecture of the original school and its historical neighborhood,
the new buildings where built with the same classical balance of traditionalism and modernism.
The school size was increased from 64,000 to 100,000 square feet and improvements were made in the new pick-up/drop-off plaza to alleviate street congestion.
All portables were removed from the campus and replaced with permanent buildings. The overall project was $46M (Opened Fall 2015)
