Document Description
Fresno State proposes to construct a new, approx 80,000-gsf Student Union building. The project would also include demolition of the existing 7,400-gsf Keats building, as well as the approx 47,000 sf amphitheater and 3,000 sf stage on the project site. The building would include lounge spaces, meeting rooms for student clubs and organizations, campus-serving retail services and program spaces, and offices for professional staff affiliated with Fresno State. The building would also include a 12,000 sf multi-purpose meeting room accommodating 1,200 seats. A new student plaza would be created north of the new Student Union building. Utility infrastructure improvements, new lighting and landscaping, and a loading dock would also be provided. The project would not include additional parking facilities. A master plan revision is also proposed to accommodate the New Student Union building on the proposed project site. This would involve changes to the current Master Plan that would add the project to the proposed location and remove the existing Keats building and amphitheater/stage from the project site.
