Historic Project

Animo Watts Phase II: Green Dot High School

Phase 1 was an adaptive reuse of a former storage warehouse. The building is 14,000 square feet sitting on 74,435 square feet of land.

Phase 1 included 24 classrooms, plus a science lab, administrative offices, an outdoor play court, lunch area, and on-site student drop-off/pick-up area.

Phase 2 was a new 12,600 square foot 12 classroom building adjacent to the existing building.

This was the first satellite school in GD’s transformation plan of Locke High School.

Green Dot provided 100% of the financing for this project and has entered into a 15 year lease agreement with the owner, Watts Labor Community Action Committee. PCSD served as the Project Manager for the site development.
