Wheeler Theatre Study 2011
Client:Wheeler Theatre
Project Category:Planning and Feasibility
Architect:Owen Richards Architect
Completion Year:2011
Location:Port Townsend, Washington

In collaboration with AMS Planning and Research, and ORA Architects, FDA is in the process of developing a Feasibility Study and Concept Plan for the Wheeler Theatre in Port Townsend, WA.  The historic theatre is located on the campus of Fort Worden State Park, a 19th-century naval base located at the entrance to Puget Sound.  The Study, which has involved stakeholder interviews, community workshops, and intensive sessions with possible anchor tenants, will culminate in the documentation of our feasibility analysis, several building program options and budgets, and the development of a workable business plan for the theatre.  FDA led the performance needs analysis and program development portions of the study, and assisted AMS and ORA in facilitating public workshops and developing concept plans for a new lobby addition.
