Document Description
The proposed Berkeley Way West project will replace the seismically poor Tolman Hall with a new eight-story building that will provide approximately 325,000 gross square feet (gsf), including 230,000 gsf of academic and research space and 95,000 gsf of leasable space. The academic and research space would house the Graduate School of Education, Department of Psychology, and School of Public Health. The leasable space would house and consolidate several campus administrative functions, currently dispersed throughout the City of Berkeley, and provide rental space for affiliated third-party tenants. The project will also provide a small amount of retail space on the ground floor. This project includes the demolition of the existing Tolman Hall building, which will occur once the new building is constructed and occupied.
