New Facility

Design Program:

Byce & Associates, Inc. is providing Architectural, Interior Design, Mechanical, Electrical, Civil and Structural Engineering for the City of Portage new Senior Center located on East Centre Avenue in Portage, Michigan. Byce previously conducted a facility assessment, master plan, and feasibility study for the Portage Senior Center where it was recommended that a new facility be designed and constructed.

The proposed improvements will accomplish 2 key objectives:

  • More space to accommodate expanded activities for older adults and community recreational opportunities through Portage Parks & Recreation programing.
  • Modern space to accommodate the coming wave of active baby boomers who will demand different programming and more flexible space than today’s older adults.

Features of this building include a multi-purpose room that could accommodate up to 350 people with a performance stage, a courtyard with an outdoor fireplace for socializing, an outdoor terrace for warm weather activities, multi-purpose activity space that could accommodate pickle ball, and other community recreational uses, fitness space, and a center promenade for indoor walking during the winter. Also included will be a computer lounge, a commercial kitchen to facilitate cooking classes and allow for catered events, a banquet facility that could accommodate up to 150 people for public and private events, ADA accessible restrooms, a coffee shop, gaming space, including billiards, ping pong, and other activities, as well as a dedicated space for quiet reading and reflection.
