Update of the building of Club 100 on Kamoku St.
Purchase of our clubhouse site in the Kamoku tract improvement district for the 21,600 square feet of land which is composed of three parcels, 7200 sq. ft. each, amounted to $22,692. With all improvement assessments paid for and included in the purchase price, the property was acquired for $1.05 per square foot.
Work has already commenced on installation of roads, water and sewer lines, storm drains and other improvements in the newly opened subdivision. It is expected that this project will be completed in the very near future.
Meanwhile, preliminary plans for the clubhouse have been prepared by Akagi, Nishida, Hara, Onodera and Kunimoto Associates. The outline for the structure calls for a building covering 4886 sq. ft. Meeting halls, recreation room for members, kitchen, office space, work room, dormitory, storage spaces, men and women toilets, shower facilities, and a hall for rental purposes have been incorporated into the proposed building. The plan which contemplates usage of two of the three lots is available for inspection at our club headquarters. Members are urged to study it as suggestions for modifications are welcome.
In view of the current national building restrictions, the actual construction may be delayed since approval from the National Production Authority in Washington, D. C., must be secured before the building process can commence.
Jim Lovell, one time Battalion C. 0., is chairman of the Building Committee.
