Featured Projects: Planning & Design
A new academic building that will provide sufficient space to replace the general assignment classrooms in Evans Hall and allow for the relocation of some academic programs currently housed in that building.
Below-market apartments that will house 760 graduate students in single-occupancy bedrooms. This project will triple the existing supply of university-owned housing for single UC Berkeley graduate students.
An existing UC Berkeley building at 2232 Piedmont Avenue will become a dedicated physical space for entrepreneurship. The building exterior will be restored, including accessibility improvements. Interior rooms will be thoughfully refurbished as gathering spaces, conference rooms, lounges, and offices.
The existing bridge was constructed in 1965 and is along a hillside historically known to have landslides. A State-funded replacement bridge will be constructed in parallel to the existing one. Once constructed, Centennial Drive would be connected to the new bridge and the existing bridge demolished.
Renewing the existing Bechtel Engineering Center that overlooks Memorial Glade, the new building will add 35,500 square feet across two new floors. The building will be funded entirely by philanthropy.
Construction of an upgraded NCAA-compliant softball field and a two-story structure including the concourse, fixed seating capacity for up to 1,500 spectators, and the press box.
The project will create new academic and study spaces for the Goldman School of Public Policy, maintain as much parking as possible, and incorporate much needed faculty, staff, postdoc and/or graduate student housing.
