PCSD partnered with Equitas Academy Charter Schools to develop a new campus for two elementary schools (Equitas Academy #5 and #6) in the Pico Union neighborhood of Los Angeles adjacent to its flagship campus (Equitas Academy #1). The property, which was previously an armored transport building, was converted into a two-story classroom building with administrative offices on the second floor for Equitas’ headquarters. The new space has an open-air play yard on the second floor which includes daylighting tubes in the seating areas to bring natural light to the first floor. Seating has been added around the staircases to create breakout spaces. There is ample parking onsite.
