Document Description
The City of South San Francisco is processing an application from Genentech to update the Master EIR (2007 MEIR) for the Genentech Corporate Facilities Research & Development Overlay District Expansion and Master Plan Update, which considered the environmental impacts of development on Genentech's 200-acre campus area (2007 Master Plan). The 2007 MEIR evaluated a study area of approximately 220 acres, of which 160 acres currently comprise the Genentech Master Plan District which is divided into the Lower, Upper, Mid, and West Campus neighborhoods. At build-out of the 2007 Master Plan, Genentech expects to almost double its 2006 size (from 2.8 million s.f. to roughly 6 million sf) of office, research and development, manufacturing space, amenities, and parking structures.
