Document Description
The proposed project involves the construction of a replacement laboratory building for the Life Sciences program of the College of Letters and Science on the UCLA campus. Work would involve demolition of the non-historic portion of Hershey Hall to create a site for construction of a 5-story (plus basement), replacement laboratory building at the corner of Manning Drive and Charles E. Young Drive East. The building would provide approx. 185,000 sf of laboratory and office space for the existing program including approx. 25,000 sf for new life sciences research initiatives. These new research initiatives could involve an addition of approx. 30 individuals to the campus population. Following completion of the Life Sciences Replacement Building, Hershey Hall would be renovated in compliance with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. The project is consistent with the land use and population estimates described in the 2002 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) and analyzed in the 2002 LRDP EIR certified in 2003. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2006, with completion estimated by 2009-10.
