The proposed project would provide a full service college curriculum including transfer and vocational curriculum, degree programs, certificate programs, and skill set certificates for a maximum student enrollment of 12,000 students. The existing South Gate Educational Center, located at the southwest corner of the Firestone Boulevard/Santa Fe Avenue intersection, would be vacated by the college. For the purpose of describing the project site, it is being divided into 2 parts: western and eastern. At this time, no new development for college uses are proposed on the eastern project site until student enrollment increases to a point where the demand for the construction of the parking structure proposed on the eastern project site is warranted. The eastern project site would be utilized to accommodate the new South Gate Educational Center. The proposed project would adaptively re-use Buildings 1 and 3, as well as develop a parking structure on the eastern project site. A total of ~418,900 sf of interior spaces within Buildings 1 and 3 would accommodate the required administrative, academic, vocational, and other support facilities. Building 4 would be demolished with the proposed project in order to accommodate the proposed parking structure and universal playing field. The proposed parking structure would only be constructed when student enrollment increases to a point where demand for the parking structure would only be constructed when student enrollment increases to a point where the demand for the parking structure is warranted. A surface parking lot would be located in place of proposed parking structure in the interim.
