Document Description
Proposed intercollegiate aquatic facility to consist of three single level buildings surrounding a 52-meter swimming pool with a 46-foot high dive tower. The project would displace approximately 200 surface parking spaces now on the Bancroft/Fulton site. The project does not include any permanent seating for spectators, as the Center will be used primarily for training. However, in the rare instance when event seating is required, the deck areas will accommodate temporary bleachers for up to 500 spectators. For the rare evening competitive event, the project includes event lighting of 70 footcandle average maintained over the main deck and pool from LED lights on 30'-0" high poles. A minor text amendment to the UC Berkeley Long Range Development Plan is proposed for the project.
