Present Land Use
The project site is on federal land within the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Ames Research Center. The 36-acre triangular project site is currently developed with approximately 16 one- or two-story buildings that total approximately 112,000 square feet, along with surface parking lots, roadways, and utility infrastructure. The existing buildings are mostly vacant and many were formerly used as ancillary buildings that supported Navy operations (e.g., office buildings, food service, gas station). The project site is not subject to local zoning or general plan designations.
Document Description
Moffett Partners, LLC is proposing the project. The proposed project would redevelop the project site with academic and research facilities, including office, laboratories, and research and development (collectively, “research and office uses”); conference and amenity facilities, including a gym, lobbies, and other amenities (collectively, “active uses”); student/faculty housing; short-term lodging; transportation networks; and public open spaces as well as landscaped spaces, to create a state-of-the-art research and education hub that shapes the future of technology and innovation and to advance UC Regents' educational, scientific research, charitable, and other exempt purposes (within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code). The following project alternatives will be analyzed in the joint Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS): • Build Alternative 1 would create approximately 2.3 million square feet of research uses, a conference center, active uses, student/faculty housing, and short-term lodging for visitors and conference attendees. • Build Alternative 2 would create approximately 1.4 million square feet of research uses, a conference center, active uses, student/faculty housing, and short-term lodging for visitors and conference attendees. • For the purposes of CEQA, under the No Project Alternative, Moffett Partners, LLC would not construct and operate the proposed project at the project site.
