The University of California, Davis has selected Wexford Science + Technology and GMH Capital Partners to develop the first phase of Aggie Square in Sacramento. The two firms will finance, design, construct, and own the facilities, which will include 250,000 sf of classroom and co-working space, 500,000 sf of engineering, science, and technology space, 30,000 sf of ground-floor public space, and approximately 200 housing units. The land is mostly owned by UC Davis, and the first 8.25-acre phase of construction is part of a strategic plan to create a biotech research and innovation campus on the 25-acre site. The developers will hold a ground lease and rent the facilities to university and industry tenants. ZGF Architects is providing design services for the project, which is expected to break ground in 2021.
