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.”
