The Women's Building

Sciame is the Construction Manager responsible for the renovation of the Women’s Building, originally the Bayview Correctional Facility, which will serve as a hub of activism and engagement, offering leaders working on behalf of girls and women the space, resources, and support they need to drive critical change.

The project will include the renovation of the 80,000 SF eight-story main building and the demolition of the six-story annex building, which will be replaced with a 17-story mid-rise tower. The project will house community space, art installations, lecture space, retail, offices, meeting rooms, exterior spaces and a restaurant.
