The University of California, San Diego is planning to break ground in late 2020 on the Future College Living and Learning Neighborhood in La Jolla, Calif. Designed by HKS Architects and EYRC, the five-building, 900,000-sf complex will provide general-use classrooms, a 480-seat auditorium, a conference center, administrative offices, dining and retail amenities, and residential accommodation for approximately 2,000 undergraduate students. Offering structures ranging from nine to 21 stories in height, the 11.8-acre site will include 1,200 underground parking spaces and integrated green areas for outdoor recreation and wellness. Part of a strategic plan to meet increasing enrollment, the collaborative campus is intended to become the home of UCSD's eighth college. LEED Gold sustainable design certification will be sought for the project, which will be built by Kitchell Contractors. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2023.
