Davis Hall North Replacement Building (a Component of the Northeast Quadrant Science and Safety [NEQSS] Project)
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
University academic buildings and existing parking garage Zoning: R-5 (High Density Residential) Recreational/Institutional
Document Description
The Northeast Quadrant Science and Safety (NEQSS) projects include the construction of two new institutional buildings in the northeast quadrant of the main UC Berkeley campus and the addition of one floor of parking to an existing multi-story parking structure just north of the main campus. Seismic retrofit and renovations are also proposed for Cory Hall, Davis Hall South, and the Naval Architecture Building. The NEQSS Environmental Impact Report (EIR) also addresses construction of Soda Hall II, that was evaluated in an earlier EIR but has not yet been built. Soda Hall II is addressed primarily in terms of cumulative impacts. The Davis Hall North Replacement Building would replace the existing Davis Hall (North) and would provide 145,000 gross square feet (gsf) of academic space. Laboratories, classrooms, offices, and seminar space would be provided. The Stanley Hall Replacement Building would replace existing Stanley Hall and would provide 285,000 gsf of space that would include lecture halls, classrooms, administrative offices, and research and teaching laboratories. The fourth level of the existing Lower Hearst Parking Structure would be redesigned to remove the existing tennis courts and skateboard facility to add 139 new parking spaces. An amendment to the 1990 Long Range Development Plan is requested to allow an overall gross square footage increase for Campus development of about 325,000 gsf.
