Project Overview

SmithGroupJJR worked with the City of Chandler to redevelop an existing urban site, promoting density and pedestrian connections, and "leading by example" for future economic development. The project houses new council chambers, administrative offices, a public television studio and a 330-space parking structure, the new city hall facilities celebrate Chandler's heritage, yet deliver a rich and exciting mix of aesthetics: pyramidal acoustic ceilings, a shaded mezzanine for receptions and events, and a daring kinetic sculpture adorning the entirety of a street-facing facade, altering the Hall's appearance with the sun's movement. The highly sustainable complex is designed to be one of the first LEED-Gold city halls in the nation.
