The Cordova Center: A Community’s Dream Realized


After twelve years of anticipation, the Cordova Center project became a reality in 2015. It was truly a ‘Community Inspired Development.’ This multi-use facility can accommodate the Cordova Public Library, the Cordova Historical Society, municipal administrative offices, theater and art performances, and conference/meeting spaces that can hold up to 200 guests.

Construction of the exterior, Phase I, began in September 2010 and concluded in October 2012. Phase II started in July 2014 and finished in mid-2015. It included the completion of interior spaces, as well as mechanical, plumbing, and electrical work. The Cordova Center is a testament to the community’s dedication to diversifying the economy, stabilizing the population, and enhancing the quality of life for residents.

The emphasis on energy efficiency, radiant floor heating, and operable windows not only enhances the building’s overall sustainability but also prioritizes the well-being of its occupants. The Cordova Center’s strategic location fosters a sense of community by encouraging alternative modes of transportation like walking and biking. By blending functionality with environmental stewardship, the Cordova Center stands as a testament to the positive impact sustainable design can have on both people and the planet.

Looking AHEAD…

As the Cordova Center, and the life within it, continues to grow, we look forward to providing our community with the space and resources it requires. We would also like to recognize the privilege of being able to share such a special place with those outside our community. The Cordova Center is the heart of our community and we hope to share the love it receives.
