Preservationists, builders team up on Sheraton redesign

Published: Friday, Dec. 20, 2013 - 10:10 am

I think the city Preservation Commission and the Public Market Building project team deserve recognition for their contributions to the planned redesign of the Sheraton Grand Market Hotel. As a high school student interested in architecture, I observed their joint efforts when the Preservation Commission met recently to consider proposed changes to the historic hotel, located at 13th and J streets. The commission and project team's work will allow designers to add to the building to meet modern needs while preserving its historic elements, such as its notable interior roof trusses. Architect Julia Morgan designed the original structure in 1923.
