Document Description
UCLA proposes to redevelop three University-owned, off-campus undergraduate student housing facilities to help address continued unmet need for affordable housing within walking distance to campus for single graduate students. The properties are located at 720, 726, and 824 Hilgard Avenue across the street from the eastern border of the campus. The proposed project would demolish the existing structures and construct new apartment-style accommodations on two sites (720-726 and 824) for a total of 82 studio units and 53 subterranean parking spaces with overflow parking provided on campus in Parking Structure 2, if needed. In addition, the new buildings would be designed and constructed to meet the UC-equivalent LEED New Construction "certified" green building requirements, and would be substantially consistent with the height, setback, and density requirements of the Westwood Community Plan. Implementation of the proposed project would result in a reduction in the number of student residents currently accommodated at the existing sites from approximately 109 undergraduate to 82 graduate students. The project design reflects a Mediterranean-style architecture with open courtyards that is compatible with the existing Hilgard Avenue multifamily residential streetscapes. The approximately 21-month construction period is anticipated to begin in Fall 2008.
