Samantha Clark from the Oakland Tribune is reporting in the Contra Costa Times that Oakland’s historic Scottish Rite Center is undergoing an extensive renovation. From the article:
The Scottish Rite Center that overlooks Lake Merritt is undergoing a $1.2 million renovation to return the lodge to its original glory.
For 60 days, the building will close so workers can replace the roof, install LED lighting and sound systems and make the building handicap accessible. The grand dome theater will get a fresh coat of paint and 24-karat leafing on its details.
