The project would involve the demolition of six of the existing structures, which comprise 333,340 square feet of space. Of the existing structures on site, five existing structures, totaling 293,970 square feet, would remain. The demolished structures would be replaced with three laboratory and office structures of varying heights between six and ten stories, a two-story amenity building, and two parking structures. New structures would consist of 1,035,530 square feet of new construction. New structures along with the existing structures retained would total 1,329,490 square feet and would result in a net increase in built area of 702,180 square feet, or a 53 percent increase. The project would also involve the construction of pedestrian paths throughout the project site, designed to connect with arrival points of transit and parking structures. The project would include 3,791 parking spaces, which would exceed the required 2,962 parking spaces.
