Jazz music will soon have a new, permanent home in San Francisco.

SF Jazz unveiled its $60 million plan for a state of the art facility near the Civic Center.

Designers say it will be America's first stand alone facility built exclusively for jazz.

The building will include a concert hall that seats 700 people, practice rooms, a digital recording studio, and a cafe.

It will replace an auto repair shop that currently stands at Franklin and Fell streets.
