C.W. Driver Companies, a premier builder serving California since 1919, today announced the completion of the Crown Valley Park Community Building in Laguna Niguel. The $32 million, 30,000-square-foot community center and pool offers common spaces, classrooms and fitness areas for residents to participate in a wide range of community events and activities. It also marks the final phase of a three-tier improvement plan for Crown Valley Community Park.

The new three-story community building includes offices, a multi-purpose room for up to 300 people, a kitchen, classrooms and other spaces designed for technology, dance, fitness and art. It also features a rooftop patio overlooking the adjacent community pool. The previous community building was demolished and replaced with this new facility.

“Laguna Niguel’s new recreational facility will provide extensive multipurpose spaces and amenities for the more than 240,000 children, adults and seniors who visit Crown Valley Community Park each year,” said David Amundson, project executive at C.W. Driver Companies. “C.W. Driver Companies leveraged our extensive experience constructing forward-thinking civic buildings to bring this community-oriented space to life as the culmination of a three-phase plan.”

Additional elements completed by C.W. Driver Companies during this final phase of the improvement project included enhancements to the exterior of the existing YMCA building; a complete renovation of the existing community pool, surrounding pool deck and its facility amenities; a realignment of the main drive and parking area and updates to the outdoor festival area.

C.W. Driver Companies partnered with the City of Laguna Niguel and architecture firm LPA, Inc. on the project.

The first phase of the Crown Valley Community Park improvement plan, which completed in 2015, included two new playgrounds, a splash pad, expanded amphitheater and a new bathroom building. Phase two, which completed in 2017, included habitat restoration, the creation of a wetland, a new entry bridge, two new parking lots and entry signs.

Other recently completed civic projects from C.W. Driver Companies include the County of San Diego’s East County Office and Archives office, the nation’s first zero net energy archive facility; a new 14,291-square-foot animal shelter for the City of El Cajon and the $17.9 million Mission Hills‐Hillcrest Harley & Bessie Knox Public Library in San Diego.
