Document Description
The project would amend the existing Bayer Development Agreement (DA) with the City of Berkeley to cover both the North and South Properties, while extending its duration an additional 30 years until February 2052. Overall, the project proposes to reduce the maximum allowable square footage entitled under the current DA and South Properties Use Permit by 148,000 square feet. Within the 30-year time frame, Bayer envisions retaining approximately 820,000 square feet of existing square footage, demolishing nine buildings totaling approximately 267,000 square feet, and constructing approximately 918,000 square feet of new facilities.
