Document Description
The project will provide a new campus building on the site of an existing surface parking lot on the east side of Jacaranda Hall. The buildable site area is approximately 60,000 square feet (sf) and the new two-story building would be less than 50 feet tall. The primary building entry would be located off of Jacaranda Walk. In addition, the project will include site improvements such as outdoor gathering and seating areas, shade trees and landscaping. The project will provide the necessary accessible paths of travel to the new facility as well as maintain or improve access to existing adjacent buildings, parking areas, open spaces and public edges. The proposed building would be built to the standards of IIA Type (Title 24) construction per the California Building Code (CBC). Construction is anticipated to start in January 2023 and would occur over an approximately 18-month period.
