Design of the long-awaited new San Ysidro Public Library is underway, announced Turner Construction Co. and SVA Architects Inc., which have teamed up on the $10.3 million project.
The new, 15,000-square-foot library will be built on 1.6 acres at 123 E. Seawood Ave., two blocks from the Beyer Boulevard trolley station.
New York City-based Turner Construction, which has had a presence in San Diego for more than 30 years, previously led construction of San Diego’s new $185 million central library, which opened in 2013. The library project in San Ysidro is being managed by its Special Projects Division, which oversees work ranging from $1 million to $30 million.
Santa Ana-based SVA Architects, founded in 2003, has offices in San Diego, Oakland and Honolulu. The firm specializes in urban planning, architecture and interior design.
Construction on the new San Ysidro Public Library is slated to start in early 2018 and be completed in spring of 2019.
