Seismic Life Safety Phase 2B Project

EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Institutional/Research and Academic Zone + Support Services Zone

Document Description
The proposed Project would include the demolition of existing structures (Buildings 25/25B, and 55, and up to 6 modular trailers associated with Building 71), the construction of an ~43,000 gsf General Purpose Laboratory (GPL), and the seismic strengthening of an existing structure (Building 85). The primary project objectives include supporting Berkeley Lab's ongoing research mission through provision of seismically safe, modern life science research space, along with improving efficiency and consolidating functions. The Draft EIR identifies one significant, unavoidable impact: the proposed Project would marginally increase traffic at 4 cumulatively impacted street intersections in the area. The Draft EIR also includes a supplement to the 2006 LBNL EIR with respect to one traffic impact.
