Document Description
The Berkeley campus is proposing to redevelop and revitalize the site currently known as People’s Park. The proposed Housing Project #2 (Project) would include three components: (1) student housing with associated amenities (Student Housing Component), (2) preservation and revitalization of significant open green space that will be accessible to all and will commemorate People’s Park history and legacy (Open Space Component), and (3) affordable and permanent supportive housing for formerly unhoused and/or low-income members of the community (Supportive Housing Component). The Project includes a total of 148 apartment units and 1,113 beds on the 0.6-acre site, excluding the Supportive Housing Component area and open space, and 1.7 acres of open landscape, with paths, a central glade, a grove of new and preserved trees, and sitting areas. The proposed Supportive Housing Component includes up to 125 beds of affordable and supportive housing totaling 87,500 gross square feet delivered by a non-profit developer. This Project was identified as Housing Project #2 in the Environmental Impact Report prepared for the campus’s 2021 Long Range Development Plan and Housing Projects #1 and #2 certified by the Regents in July 2021.
