AMS client Mercer Island Center for the Arts (MICA) on Mercer Island near Seattle is scheduled to break ground in late 2016, having completed early planning and begun design in January of 2015.
AMS’s role includes the development of a business plan and operating model for the new center, as well as design process management and a comprehensive utilization and operating plan. The facility is planned to include a 350-seat mainstage theatre, a 150 seat recital hall, a flexible blackbox, and a variety of education spaces for music, art, and movement.
The venue will serve to activate Mercer Island’s Town Center, and serve a number of local and regional arts organizations, including Youth Theatre Northwest, the Island’s award-winning youth theatre organization.
