Clark's California Portfolio Grows by Two More Projects

December 04, 2014

LOS ANGELES & SAN FRANCISCO – Clark Construction Group has been awarded two contracts in California. The first contract is for the Los Angeles Valley Community College Athletic Training Facility and the second one is for the 150 Van Ness Apartment Complex located near San Francisco’s Civic Center Historic District.

The Los Angeles Community College District tapped Clark to build its 25,000 square-foot stadium field house. The $24 million, one-story facility will be built using load-bearing masonry walls and a steel-framed roof structure. When complete in the fall of 2015, the building will include team and coaches’ locker rooms, a weight room, a sports medicine room, coaches’ offices, and a team laundry room. Clark also will construct a baseball field, softball field, archery area, hammer and discus throwing circles, as well as a javelin throwing field. The baseball and softball fields will include synthetic turf, bleacher seating, dugouts, batting cages, press boxes, and game day sports lighting.

Designed by CannonDesign, the Los Angeles Valley Community College Athletic Training Facility is targeting LEED® certification.

Nearly four hundred miles north, Clark also has signed an $140 million contract with Van Ness Hayes Associates, LLC, for the construction of the 150 Van Ness Apartment Complex.

The 419-unit development will include 9,000 square feet of retail space and one below-grade parking level. Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz, the facility will feature an array of amenities, including a roof-top terrace, lap-swim pool, spa, and basketball courts. Amenity space will be constructed on the first and second floors and will be comprised of reclaimed stone flooring from the California State Automobile Association headquarters, which Clark is demolishing to make way for the complex.

When complete, the 150 Van Ness Apartment Complex will be GreenPoint Rated under the Green Globes Multifamily Building rating system.

Clark is currently providing preconstruction services; construction is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2015. Substantial completion is slated for February 2017.
