    • Center for Community Renewal Facility Design Program Introduction & Acknowledgements Developing the National Center for Community Renewal Preliminary thoughts to guide facility programming and design Interest in the success of Shreveport / Bossier Community Renewal has resulted in the need to establish a national center. The philosophy, programs and methodology of rebuilding communities on mutually enhancing relationships are working. Shreveport / Bossier, Louisiana is the laboratory to develop and implement programs. As word spreads support and interest are growing. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has provided the resources to help formalize the methodology for documenting success and replicating the processes of renewal in other communities. Community Renewal has established a national board for the purpose of building capacity to share these programs with communities around the world. Partnering initiatives with several Universities and interest from federal and state political leadership supports the need for establishing a National Center for Community Renewal (NCCR). The Center will serve two primary purposes:  The Community Renewal Learning Center will provide training and conference facilities. Training sessions will range in duration from several days up to six weeks. Participants in longer duration training will achieve Community Renewal Certification. The training and conference sessions are collaborative and experiential. Participants are exposed day and night to opportunities to learn the programs and develop strategies to apply to their communities. This teacher and peer learning process requires a building that functions as a complete conference center with training / meeting rooms; housing that encourages informal gatherings and small group peer collaboration; and food service. Flexibility is important for training rooms. Group sizes are anticipated to range from several groups of 10 – 15 to larger sessions of up to 300 participants. The market for training is broad and includes community activist, social service providers, community development professionals, planners, redevelopers, political leaders, and many others from communities all over the world.  The Community Renewal Institute will provide offices for faculty, researchers, interns, guest lecturers, Community Renewal administration and other support staff (current projections for CR administrative staff of 35); research library that will include production facilities for developing training materials; and distance learning / web casting facilities. Activities of the Institute will include monitoring the progress of renewal communities, publishing research and partnership initiatives with higher education institutions. The Center will be a demonstration of renewal, a symbol that reflects the purpose and spirit lifting qualities that inspire rebuilding quality communities. The NCCR will be designed and operated to stimulate renewal of the building context. A location at the heart of Shreveport / 1 Center for Community Renewal - Design Program mh Morgan Hill Sutton & Mitchell Architects LLC 6.25.05 sm
    • Center for Community Renewal Facility Design Program Introduction & Acknowledgements Bossier was identified: a 16-story, 140,000 square foot high-rise office building. The owners agreed with the concept and donated the building for use as the NCCR. The 1960’s vintage, concrete frame, curtain wall building was abandoned in the late 1980’s due to local market conditions and cost of asbestos removal. It is a great building to target for renewal using appropriate urban design and renewal architecture principals to symbolize the mission of the NCCR. For example, the first floor uses of the building should contribute to the streetscape pedestrian experience. Storefront business with display windows and frequent entry doors add to the life and safety of the street. A mixed-use project adds to the viability of a 24-hour a day downtown. The act of renovating this building is a “green action” that reduces embodied energy required to manufacture and transport materials for construction. What are the additional opportunities to renew this building through “green building” principals? What is the appropriate LEED certification? The building as a symbol and an experience should inspire an architectural expression of the NCCR purpose to renew communities. The top of the building is an opportunity to distinguish this building and design a memorable addition to the skyline. The building entry should be inviting and encourage the feeling of mutually enhancing relationships. Ideas discussed include a 2-story lobby that conceptually resembles a neighborhood main street. The building design should encourage interaction. Public spaces should provide a variety of opportunities for participants and visitors to meet and places to sit, talk and collaborate. Dialogue areas or “living areas” should be included in residential, conferencing and any commercial areas of the building. Among the Center amenities include a small chapel that could be located on the top of the building or other appropriate location. The issue of food service should be explored carefully to determine the degree of on site food preparation or contract food service. In determining an exact program to guide design there are many issues to explore and understand. Among those issues are:  Descriptions of training and other activities in the building.  Requirements for research and library facilities.  Management and staffing requirements for the national center.  Parking options for the facility.  Facility management options and analysis.  Operational budgets.  Renovation and furnishings functional concepts and budgets.  Residential floors requirements - room sizes, features and quantity.  Code implications 2 Center for Community Renewal - Design Program mh Morgan Hill Sutton & Mitchell Architects LLC 6.25.05 sm
    • Center for Community Renewal Facility Design Program Introduction & Acknowledgements  Fundraising strategies and publications  Technology requirements Current challenges include identifying and organizing people resources to model the possibilities for NCCR. The current strategy is to bring diverse brainpower to the table in a “Charette” setting. Invitation possibilities for groups or individuals are:  Conference Center experts from Oklahoma University with applicable functional and operational knowledge.  Architecture and planning students and faculty from University of Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana Tech to work in blended teams on design ideas. A program will be prepared prior to the Charette to guide teams. The Charette agenda will be structured to allow teams to incorporate ideas from parallel facilitations for other group discussions.  Academicians to discuss organization, certification and teaching techniques.  Community Renewal Staff  Facility managers to discuss operational structures and options.  Economic developers from the state and representative(s) from the Governor’s office.  Fundraising strategists  Professional architects, planners and board members  Others? Discussion and evaluation is also needed to determine the structure for project delivery and schedule. Funding for asbestos removal is under way and initial funds are committed to move forward with planning for abatement. Potential project funding sources include HUD, Brownfield grants, Kresge Foundation and donations. 3 Center for Community Renewal - Design Program mh Morgan Hill Sutton & Mitchell Architects LLC 6.25.05 sm

    • Center for Community Renewal Facility Design Program Goals & Overview Vision Our vision is to develop, support, and nurture the Center for Community Renewal located in downtown Shreveport where learning to restore the foundation of safe and caring communities by rebuilding the system of caring relationships is demonstrated and taught to other communities, national and international. Major Goal We envision building this National Center to aid in stopping the disintegration of cities and neighborhoods where families and individuals can have hope and live in productive and healthy communities. To understand that by re-establishing a systemic way of building relationships, we will restore our ability to build healthy and productive communities in our cities. To develop and implement the development of a new industry of social technology to renew neighborhoods and cities. Major Action To remediate, renovate, and develop a sustainable environmentally sound “green” building using cutting edge technology and techniques in partnership with the University of Texas School of Architecture and the University of California at Berkeley for the purpose of housing the National Center of Community Renewal.. What Is the Need? It is apparent that communities and cities are experiencing rising criminal activity, drug and alcohol abuse, children being abused and neglected, domestic violence, school dropouts, and increasing number of uneducated individuals living in poverty. Billions of dollars and effort goes into addressing these problems through our federal, state, and city budgets each year. An individual or organization alone will not solve these problems. Solving these problems will take all of us. We realize that our cities rest on the foundation of relationships. If these relationships disintegrate we will continue to see these difficult problems face our individuals, communities, and cities. By establishing a systemic process to rebuild these relationships, which has been established in Shreveport, Louisiana, this process can then be shared with others through our National Center of Community Renewal. Expected Outcomes of Training of National Center  Develop a new industry of “social technology” to enhance growth capital  Dissemination of a systematic working model to neighborhoods and cities who wish to stop disintegration of cities through an established training and demonstration program 6 Center for Community Renewal - Design Program mh Morgan Hill Sutton & Mitchell Architects LLC 6.25.05 sm
    • Center for Community Renewal Facility Design Program Goals & Overview  An established on-going training program and support for all levels of individual and organizations through the National Training Center Program  Replication of model in partnering cities through training and technical assistance  Increased involvement of individuals in impoverished neighborhoods in changing their culture Renewal Team  Established academic certification through partnership with existing universities Haven House  Established a curriculum for interns with partnership with existing college and universities  Develop curriculum to deliver training in all three aspects of model by on-site and through distance learning  Increase in quality of life in neighborhoods and cities  Develop a fee structure for national center to become a profit center to support Internal Care Unit activities  Seek grants/contracts to aid participation by others interested in studying at the National Center and the concept of Community Renewal Major Components of Modal of Renewal— Relational Foundation = Social Capital = Mutually connected together Our model will provide the principles and knowledge to implement the major efforts. SBCR produces MER by doing 3 things: RT, HH & ICU Renewal Team: The Renewal Team acts as a coordinator and facilitator of many individuals and groups including businesses, civic organizations, churches, and professional organizations Haven House Renewal Team Internal Care Unit that support our mission of connecting and serving the community. The We Care Team helps caring people visible to one another throughout the community. Caring alone does not We are disconnected / isolated There is the reality of stop collapse… on our streets & decay & problems of in our neighborhoods… oppression, race & Haven House Plan: Caring relationships among neighbors are developed “block by block” poverty… across the city by enlisting and training persons willing to build friendships and neighbors on Connect Caring People: Take city back, systematically: Renew whole persons: their street. These dedicated volunteers are committed to remaking “their neighborhoods”. 1. Visible 1. Rebuild relational foundation 1.

    • Center for Community Renewal Facility Design Program Site & Context Location and Existing Building Description National Center for Community Renewal The National Center for Community Renewal (NCCR) will be located in a vacated existing fifteen-story high-rise office building in the central business district of Shreveport, Louisiana. The site is at the Northeast (North by compass) corner of Texas and Edwards Streets. The west side of the building is 150 feet along Edwards Street. Lobby entry to the high-rise is near the center of this side. The south side is 60 feet along Texas Street. Along the north side is a service alley that divides the city block. The east side of the building is on the property line adjoining an adjacent two story building. The orientations described are for ease of describing the building, as compass north is diagonal to the city block grid. The building, constructed as the Petroleum Tower in 1958, is located in a downtown historic district. There are approximately 10 other high-rise buildings of 10-24 floors within one block of this building. There are also a number of locally important buildings that add to the historic fabric within one block (e.g., The Chamber of Commerce that was the old library, the old Post Office that was renovated for use as the central library and the Parish Courthouse). There remain a number of 2 – 5 story commercial buildings that also contribute to the “toute ensemble” of the historic district. Over the past 20 years approximately 80 of these structures have been demolished and primarily used as surface parking. The National Center building is in the center of this area of downtown that is the business and financial center of Shreveport and the Ark-La-Tex. Texas Street is the historic main street and is the widest street in downtown. Zoning for the property is B-4 (Central Business District). Parking is not required for office use. Petroleum Tower does not have parking associated with the building, which was a likely contributing factor to the decision to vacate the building. There are a number of parking structures and surface lots within a short walk. One nearby parking facility is structured for additional floors. Petroleum Tower is a concrete frame building with aluminum curtainwall exterior cladding on the north, west and south facades. The party wall on the east façade is black modular brick masonry. Structural bays are nominally 20’ x 25’. Building core functions (i.e., traction elevators, stairs and toilets) are located along the east side of the building. In addition to the 15 floors of tenant space are a basement and mechanical penthouse. Induction heating units are located on the perimeter of each floor. Space above the ceilings of each floor is used as a return air plenum. Concrete beam and floor construction provides a 3-hour fire separation. Stairwells are enclosed in 2-hour construction of 2.5” thick solid plaster walls. Stair widths are approximately 3’-8” with an exit capacity of 140 (.3” per person) for each stair. Separation of 10 Center for Community Renewal - Design Program mh Morgan Hill Sutton & Mitchell Architects LLC 6.25.05 sm
    • Center for Community Renewal Facility Design Program Site & Context stairs is approximately 1/3 the diagonal distance of the building which will require that the building be sprinkled in any reuse configuration. Floor to floor heights are relatively shallow ranging from 14’ on the first floor to 11’6” for upper floors. The aluminum curtainwall components are no longer made and air infiltration is evident. Several asbestos containing materials have been identified in acoustic plaster ceilings and piping that will be abated prior to renovation. 11 Center for Community Renewal - Design Program mh Morgan Hill Sutton & Mitchell Architects LLC 6.25.05 sm

General Building Considerations 1. The National Center for Community Renewal will be composed of 3 components: The Community Renewal Training Center, The Community Renewal Institute and The Community Renewal Resource Center. 2. Reinforce the concepts of “renewal” and “communityquot; in the building design. Symbolism should reflect ideals such as “Inclusion, Community, Neighborliness, World Community and Togetherness” . 3. The building ground floor should function as a welcome center and registration area. It should also provide activities that enhance the downtown neighborhood such as storefront shops (coffee shop, food court and other retail for downtown) and possibly a “Community Renewal Museum with exhibits that document the growth and success of the Renewal Movement. 4. Classes at the National Center will be revenue generating to cover some of operations. 5. One suggestion was offered that the National Center could be like a “Friendship House” that includes downtown human resources for teaching low income in the downtown area as a demonstration of community building by the National Center. This concept would have full time residents to resemble a Friendship House—possibly one role as facility manager and one role for downtown neighborhood coordinator. Community Renewal Training Center 1. The Community Renewal Training Center is a conference center that includes housing and meeting / training rooms. 2. Learning will occur in large groups of up to 300 for “information sharing” such as orientation and in small groups of 7 to 20 (15 is ideal) for “interaction learning”. 3. One concept discussed is small groups symbolized as neighborhoods with small group participants residing in a cluster of bedrooms around a common area for social and learning gatherings. This could become a co-op type environment where participants share responsibilities (some examples mentioned that are similar include new dorm concepts & senior centers). Questions discussed included: Will internet access in bedrooms limit interaction? Will we include provisions for children? Should some double rooms (2 beds) be included to allow for cultural considerations or choice? 4. Large group meetings could symbolize the gathering of many neighborhoods to share ideas, resources and work. Consider the possibility of moveable walls to subdivide larger meeting rooms to allow experimenting with group size and learning. 5. Training will take place in sessions from as few as 3 days to as long as 6 weeks. Learning activities will take place in The Center and out in area neighborhoods that are the laboratory for Community Renewal. A summary of the renewal process is included in the Project Goals and Overview section of the program. Staff is developing the training programs and considering issues such as: How do we create learning programs and environments that maximize benefit to various learning styles? How will we build community in 3 days? How much interaction time and how much quiet time for individual reflection? 6. Learning activities should include behavior pattern development that occurs during meals and community meetings that are scheduled in a disciplined process. (could include gatherings after normal hours?) 7. Ancillary spaces for residential areas include: laundry room, exercise room, small place for reflection or worship (could be a chapel, place on each floor or individual bedrooms) 21 Center for Community Renewal - Design Program mh Morgan Hill Sutton & Mitchell Architects LLC 6.25.05 sm

Community Renewal Resource Center 1. The Resource Center will provide “technical” & “foundation” support to individuals & groups involved in developing social technology to renew communities. This support will include building a community of people renewing communities. 2. Technical support will include a staff of specialists that form “technical support teams” that specialize in: general knowledge of renewal, volunteer recruitment, Community Coordinators, Haven Houses, Renewal Teams & CEO development. Over a ten year period these specialist areas will grow to 5 staff for each area of specialty. Some of these staff will travel to communities to provide on site assistance. Tech Teams will convene monthly virtual town hall meetings to share progress as a means of developing a support system for community renewers across the country. This will require a media department with a small television studio for recording & broadcast. The work of Technical Support will be supported by Renewal Publishing Company that will be housed in the Community Renewal Resource Center Media Department. 3. The Community Renewal Foundation will offer memberships nationwide thru the internet. The foundation will make seed grants of approximately $50,000 per year per group to get started. A portion of foundation funds will go to SBCR to support development work as the laboratory organization. Staffing for the foundation will include a director, assistant with conference room and support areas. 4.

Community Renewal Institute 1. The Institute will develop state-of-the-art thinking for Community Renewal. The Institute will work with academic and institutional partners on research projects such as conceptual models, methodologies, research techniques and information tracking. The analogy for the institute is the “Manhattan Project” as a model for how to bring together brainpower to design solutions to a complex problem. 2. The Institute will operate a “Think Tank” and will periodically assemble “thinkers” that understand principles that lead to renewal. Topics for think tank sessions could include diagnostics and solutions that affect change. 3. The Institute will produce and distribute “white papers” and a journal.
