Document Description
The Upper Hearst Development for the Goldman School of Public Policy (GSPP) project is located on the northeast edge of the UC Berkeley Campus Park and includes two components - academic and residential - to be undertaken simultaneously by a project developer. The academic component involves constructing an approx. 37,000 sq. ft., four-story-building for GSPP, redeveloping a portion of the footprint of the existing Upper Hearst Parking Structure at Hearst and La Loma Avenues. To accommodate the new academic building, the western portion of the existing parking structure would be demolished. The residential component involves developing up to 150 residential units in a five-to six-story building above the Upper Hearst Parking Structure, as well as on an adjacent surface parking lot, which would be removed entirely.
