On August 15, 2016, Healdsburg City Council directed staff to develop a schematic design plan for the Cerri Site (Purity Building) that:
Preserves the façade and a portion of the building
Includes bathrooms and a kitchen
Can be implemented in phases
Uses an ecologically friendly surface for the parking lot surface
In addition, the City Council has directed that the site needs to function as the permanent home of the Healdsburg Farmer's Market.
The design team evaluated different approaches to meeting the City Council's direction. As part of this work the team analyzed how best to maximize parking on the site, preserving the front verses rear portion of the structure, where the façade should be placed, and whether some of the more prominent architectural elements of the structure could be repurposed. The outcome of this work is displayed below as the proposed schematic design that will be discussed as part of this special public open house.
