Document Description
The University of California, Berkeley has approved a 45 year ground lease with the Bowles Hall Foundation (an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation) for the renovation and management of a 55,000 square foot student housing residence on the Berkeley campus, at the existing Bowles Hall. Bowles Hall is on the National Register and became a City of Berkeley landmark in 1988 (#120). It was built in 1928 and was the first public university-owned residence hall on campus. The project involves the complete renovation and upgrade of the historic building. The existing building has no accessibility features for the mobility impaired. In response, the existing entry at the third floor west lobby (northwest side of the building) will become a second front door, and a new elevator will provide access to as many different levels as possible.
