Document Description
ArtCenter was first established in Los Angeles in 1930 and moved to its current Hillside Campus (at 1700 Lida Street) in the City of Pasadena in 1976. In 2004, ArtCenter established a second campus also in Pasadena, referred to as the South Campus (at 950 S. Raymond Avenue). As the South Campus has grown and operations have shifted to this campus over time, the Hillside Campus and the south Campus have become increasingly connected. As a result, the Art Center has submitted one Master Plan application for a new 15-year Master Plan (the Project) that encompasses development on and comprehensively identifies vision for both the Hillside Campus and the South Campus. ArtCenter would focus growth on its South Campus, while providing for infrastructure improvements and building renovations to existing buildings, additional parking, installation of photovoltaic (PV) solar cells, and modifications to campus access. The Project would be implemented in two phases, with Phase I occurring between 2017 and 2022 and Phase II occurring between 2022 and 2032. It is anticipated that upon completion of the project, total enrollment within ArtCenter would increase from its current enrollment of approx. 2,000 full-time equivalent (FTE) students to a maximum of 2,500 FTE students and increase faculty/staff from 753 faculty/staff members to approx. 994 faculty/staff members between the two campuses.
