The City of Newport Beach Civic Center and Park Project includes a 98,000 SF office building, a two-story 440 car parking structure, city council chambers building, and 17,000 SF library addition. The new 97,000 SF office building houses 240 city employees. The public area includes a large “One Stop Shop” layout to improve customer service for residents seeking parking permits or getting planning or building approvals. The 16-acre park features an enclosed dog park, civic lawn for outdoor events, places for art, wetlands, and 1.23 miles of walking trails. The 17,000 SF, two-story expansion of the Newport Beach Central Library effectively links the library and civic Center. Other facilities include: an emergency readiness center to house the City’s emergency response team; a community room with seating for up to 150 persons available for lectures, arts programs, and other community events opening up to an outside covered area; and City Council Chambers that seat up to 150 persons and can double as a space for community meetings.
