Completed in 1988, Escondido City Hall was the first phase of the Escondido Civic Center. The building was awarded the prestigious Urban Land Institute Award for Excellence in 1989. City Hall represents innovative, functional, state-of-the-art, cost-effective solutions to many specific City needs. City Hall was designed with an anticipation of the future, as well as an appreciation of the past, and is a superb example of how architecture can reflect the heart of the community and inspire civic pride.
