The Daily Journal has a piece about the on-going Rec Center scoping sessions that notes
The city has said the current building is not seismically sound. It is looking at a variety of options, including three possible locations for a new building, all of which would still be east of the Burlingame Avenue Caltrain Station on the residential stretch of Burlingame Avenue. The first would be a 30,200-square-foot building closer to Caltrain, the second would be the popular 35,500-square-foot building located where the current community center is and the last would be a 41,900-square-foot structure a little farther down the street. The current structure is 25,000 square feet.
Eagle-eye blogger Lorne notes on our post from last October that
I didn't realize one possibility is a new rec center combined with a new city hall building (i.e., civic center)- with an estimated price tag of $56 million, per this list on the city's website:
And sure enough on the top of page 4 that idea is broached. If I recall, the idea would be to sell the current City Hall site to raise part of the nut. It will be interesting to see how any of this pencils out financially with or without underground parking.
