Present Land Use
The site is zoned Public (P). UCSF's 1996 Long Range Development Plan identified the need for additional instruction and research in new facilities combined with decommissioning and demolition of obsolete and seismically poor buildings on the site. The project would include a minor amendment to the LRDP to upgrade the functional zone map and modify the boundaries of the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve.

Document Description
The proposed UCSF Institute for Regeneration Medicine project would construct a new one-story building that would step up in four segments along the contours of the slope adjacent to Medical Center Way. The proposed building would contain laboratory research and support functions totaling approximately 71,100 gross square feet (gsf). The Institute for Regeneration Medicine building would consolidate and provide expansion for the programs in stem cell research and development currently occupying dispersed laboratory spaces at Parnassus Heights. It would provide a venue where research using non-registered stem cell lines can demonstrate clear separation from lines eligible for Federal funding. In addition, UCSF proposes to construct an Auditorium of about 8,000 gsf adjacent to the proposed building that would provide replacement space for the Toland lecture hall in the seismically poor rated UC Hall. The Auditorium would be a freestanding structure and may be constructed on a separate schedule from the Institute building; however, for purposes of CEQA both projects are evaluated together.
