Tenderloin Center honored by the American Institute of Architects

The brilliant build team behind our Tenderloin Center, INTERSTICE Architects, Jonas Kellner, MKThink, Gensler, BCCI Construction, OFFICE, Tipping Structural Engineers, GLUMAC, and Project Manager Valerie Veronin were given a special commendation in the category of Social Responsibility for their incredible work on our second writing lab.

“The 826 Valencia Tenderloin Center is a transformative project converting a dilapidated corner-liquor-store into a space of learning and delight where thousands of children become authors and the poet-laureates of their community. The whimsical retail space provides the “front” for an inclusive safe-haven for the imaginations of the neighborhood.”
