Document Description
The Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) provides a high-level planning framework for University of California, Berkeley's planning area and surrounding campus environs. The most recent LRDP forecasted development through the year 2020. The LRDP will forecast development through the 2036-2037 academic school year and proposes to add up to 11,700 student housing beds, 385 employee housing units, and approximately 4,000,000 gross square feet (GSF) of academic and administrative facilities. The project includes two specific student housing projects (Housing Projects #1 and #2). Housing Project #1 includes up to 850 beds for students, and Housing Project #2 would include up to 1,200 beds for UC Berkeley students, and a separate housing unit for lower income (non-university affiliated) individuals with up to 125 units. UC Berkeley will develop an Environmental Impact Report that will analyze project impacts at the programmatic level for the LRDP update, and at the project level for the two housing projects.
