SFJAZZ Center to begin construction

Update from SFJAZZ’s Randall Kline, Executive Artistic Director, and Felice Swapp, Executive Operating Director

We are excited to be moving forward with the SFJAZZ Center project at the corner of Franklin and Fell Streets, which is intended to maintain and enhance the vitality and character of the existing neighborhood, and serve as a community facility we can all be proud of. The facility will also be the first concert hall on the West Coast designed with the specific, and various needs of jazz in mind.

We are pleased to announce that the project is moving forward on schedule. We plan to begin demolition of the existing building on May 1, 2011 and expect it will take approximately 2 months.
