Center bursts forth in color
Workers loaded a truck with the final bit of scaffolding from the San Francisco LGBT Community Center Monday, February 13 to reveal a bright new lavender color scheme. The work is part of the center's $6.9 million renovation project. The facade of the Fallon Building, a Queen Anne-style Victorian built in 1894 at the corner of Market Street and Octavia Boulevard, was repainted with Dunn Edwards Palace Purple as the main color. The exterior of the modern building also sports new colors. The center is expected to formally reopen April 9, just in time for its 15th anniversary, and will house several nonprofit organizations.
