Maritime Center Phase II Renovations
As of July 2014, the capital campaign for Phase II Renovations of the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center was underway. It is off to a promising start as we received a $200,000 matching grant pledge from the Doerfler Family Trust. Phase II incorporates the majority of the lower floor of the Maritime Center, some 8000 square-feet, as well as exterior renovations.
Inside, the main attraction will be the Doerfler Family Theatre, a 140-seat media/event space. With a stunning panoramic view of the Bayfront, this multi-purpose venue will accommodate small stage and music performances, film festivals, presentations and special events of all kinds. In addition, the lower level will boast a 110-person capacity conference room, catering area, and a large set of restrooms with a bridal changing area. And last but certainly not least, a public elevator will be installed creating ADA compliant access to all three floors of the Maritime Center.
On the exterior, a children’s discovery area and outdoor terrace will greatly enhance the southwest corner of the building. On the east side, handicap parking and a loading dock will allow easier access to the theatre lobby and storage areas.
Donate today and your generosity will go twice as far! We have received a $200,000 matching grant pledge from the Doerfler Family Trust that will match your donation (up to $200,000), thus doubling your donation. Our goal is to begin construction on Phase II this fall. Call (541) 265-7509 or email us through this site for more information.
