The proposed Project involves the development of a new two-story (plus rooftop deck), student-oriented, multi-purpose building at UCLA’s Sunset Canyon Recreation Center (Sunset Rec), which would provide approximately 11,500 gross square feet (gsf) of recreational floor area plus approximately 6,500 gsf of exterior space that is covered but unenclosed. The proposed building would include three multi-purpose rooms plus a teaching kitchen and a rooftop deck with a solar canopy. Also included are staff offices with a small conference room, gender inclusive restrooms and a family restroom, a lactation room, storage areas, custodial/mechanical space, a telecommunications/IT room, an accessible elevator meeting Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, and circulation areas. Additionally, associated utility, landscape, and hardscape improvements would be installed. The new building would replace a series of seven existing buildings/facilities at Sunset Rec, which comprise approximately 6,982 gsf of floor area plus 5,807 gsf of covered but unenclosed space. Collectively the buildings to be demolished are seismically deficient, substantially damaged/deteriorated (and therefore some of which are no longer habitable), non-compliant with current ADA requirements, otherwise constrained from a programming perspective, or, in some cases, inextricably physically, structurally, or programmatically dependent upon the deficient structures. Despite deteriorated conditions, the existing Sunset Rec buildings to be demolished are contributors to a historic district that is eligible for listing in the California Register of Historic Resources, and they are therefore considered historic resources under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
