Present Land Use
The Ernest O. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is a national research facility in Berkeley and Oakland, California, operated by the University of Calfornia for the Department of Energy. University-owned land is leased to DOE by the Regents of the University of California. The facility will be owned by DOE. Onsite land uses include offices, laboratory buildings, support facilities, roadways parking areas, and landscaping. Berkeley Lab has a Long Range Development Plan (August 1987) that guides development at the site.

Document Description
Berkeley Lab proposes to construct The Molecular Foundry, a six-story laboratory building of approximately 86,500 gross square feet and a utility building of about 8,000 gsf, in the southeast corner of the Berkeley Lab site. It would be used for the interdisciplinary exploration and study of nanosciences, and would be a national use facility open to visiting scientists. Construction would take place between January 2004 and February 2006.
