Over the past week, Wright Contracting began the demolition of portions of the former Traverso’s building in downtown Santa Rosa. This busy street corner will be transformed into Luther Burbank Savings‘ new Headquarters Branch.
The building, which has been unoccupied for years, will be clad in an elegant wood veneer rainscreen system. Silver aluminum fascias, doors, windows and sunscreens will complement the rich reddish-brown wood veneer. The parking lot will be constructed of colored concrete and enclosed by a perforated aluminum fence. Natural stone and other landscape materials will contribute to a very sophisticated streetscape. Local artist Ellen Blakeley will incorporate landscape materials from nearby Luther Burbank Gardens into an art glass installation on the B Street Façade.
The Headquarters Branch will open for business in Spring of 2012. Throughout the construction process we will be posting regular photo updates, so stay tuned!
