Planning for the capital project continues, and we are preparing for another community meeting to discuss a number of development options. To facilitate this discussion, the Pratt Museum’s pre-development architect has rendered five options for placement of the new building on the Museum’s 9.3 acres of property. These options will be discussed at a community meeting scheduled for this Fall, which will be announced publicly on this site and in the media. To send us your comments, contactDiane Converse .

Option 1A – New construction on NW portion of property. The existing build is reused by other organizations, and adequate parking is provided for both facilities. A boathouse is added near the existing shop.
Option 2A – New construction in the central portion of the property. The existing building is removed and a boathouse is constructed on the site of the old building reusing the foundations and salvaged materials.
Option 2B – New construction located in central area of property and the existing building repurposed. Parking is expanded to accommodate both facilities. A boathouse is located to the SE of the new museum building.
Option 3A – New construction is located on SE of property. The original building is removed and replaced with parking. A boathouse is located near the current shop.
Option 3B – New construction is located on SE of property. The existing building is removed and a boathouse is constructed on the site of the old building reusing the foundations and salvaged materials. Parking area is minimized.
