Document Description
The project would involve construction of a student housing complex 0.5 mile northwest of the Cal Poly Humboldt main campus and would provide up to 964 student beds in approximately 240 apartment-style, student residences for undergraduate and graduate students attending Cal Poly Humboldt. Student housing opportunities would be provided in a variety of two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartment-style units, with the majority being two-bedroom/two-bath units. Development would consist of two housing buildings located within the central portion of the site. Several on-site amenities would be included as part of the project, including a fitness room, common lounge spaces, study spaces, computer rooms, television rooms, a café/market, conference rooms, and indoor bicycle parking. Exterior site features would include green space, recreational facilities (e.g., multifunction, pickleball, and/or volleyball court[s]), outdoor cooking amenities (e.g., barbecue area for on-site residents), and appropriate hardscapes (i.e., paths between various on-site features, including buildings and parking). Additionally, the project would include 340 single-occupancy vehicle parking spaces and additional bicycle parking (covered). Cal Poly Humboldt aims to exceed the energy efficiency and sustainability requirements of both the California Green Building Standards Code and California Energy Code. The development would achieve LEED v4 Silver certification.
