Document Description
Site Plan Review approval to update, modernize, and demolish existing facilities to develop the "USC Campus Center" upon the campus of the University of Southern California (USC). The project proposes to demolish the existing Commons and the Norman Topping Student Activities Center ("Topping Center") and develop two, new four-story buildings or wings with an expanded basement level consisting of approximately 133,157 square-feet of building area with the existing Student Union Building to also undergo minor improvements on its exterior facade integrated into a new plaza. The net increase in new building area would be approximately 67,973 square-feet. Furthermore, the project will serve existing and future students, will not increase the student enrollment level, and is anticipated to increase the number of staff and faculty members by 25. The proposed uses for this new development would be for student programs, student involvement activities, dining and food service uses, admissions, alumni center activities and storage/mechanical uses with proposed daily hours of operation from 6:00 am to 2:00 am. A temporary dining facility to provide food service will also be developed during the construction phases of the proposed project. The USC campus consists of 2.13 acres, and is zoned [Q]R4-1. Seventeen protected and non-protected trees will be removed and approximately 39,000 cubic yards of dirt will be exported.
