Document Description
The Greenhouse Replacement project (proposed project) would construct an approximately 17,400-gross-square-foot (GSF) greenhouse and headhouse facility with approximately 13,460 assignable square feet ( ASF) on an undeveloped site located in the Academic Core of the University of California, Irvine (UCI). A service road with four parking spaces would be constructed to connect the project site to West Peltason Drive, and improvements would be made to the existing pedestrian footpath located south of the project site to allow for emergency vehicle access. The proposed project is a replacement for the existing approximately 15,000 GSF greenhouse and headhouse facility located approximately 0.25 miles northeast of the project site, which would be demolished and analyzed under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the upcoming Student Success Building project. Additional scope of work includes demolition of existing ornamental landscaping; earthwork; and installation of utilities, lighting, and new landscaping. Proposed uses of the space include offices, laboratories, seed room, growth chamber, headhouse wet room, and equipment and chemical storage.
