Grand Theatre Center for the Arts

Tracy, CA | arts/entertainment | historic

The reclamation and adaptive reuse of five buildings on a block of historic downtown Tracy assures the town’s future will be connected to its past.

Rendering by Anthony Grand

The Grand Theatre Center for the Arts integrates several restored buildings on half a city block into a new arts complex, which includes a 560-seat proscenium theater, a 100-seat black box theater, dance, visual arts, and music studios, and art galleries located in former street front retail spaces. The gaps between the buildings have become a new skylit lobby. Rather than seeking a unifying design vocabulary, each building expresses its individual character, maintaining the rich variety and character of a historic downtown which giving new life as an active, thriving, component of the community.
