Navy and Marine Center in Elysian Park Renewed

June 29, 1986

The 53-year-old Naval and Marine Corps Reserve Center in Elysian Park, an example of WPA Moderne architecture, has been restored and remodeled at a cost of $4.5 million.

The architect was Clements & Clements Architects, Pasadena, successor firm to the original architects, Stiles Clements Architects, Los Angeles. The building had been unusable since 1980, when a fire partially destroyed its roof.

Work on the building, a state historical monument, included remodeling of the center's three-level office building on Stadium Way, adjacent to Dodger Stadium, construction of a new vehicle maintenance building, remodeling of an existing vehicle storage facility and the repairing of a covered drill deck.

Inside the 90,000-square-foot office building, the architects design gutted all three levels and added new carpeting and tile floors and a new acoustical tile ceiling with an integrated fluorescent lighting system. The architect was under contract to the Western Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, San Bruno, Calif.
