In addition to the revised plans for 520 beds of student housing to rise up to five stories in height on its 188 Hooper Street site at the intersection of Hooper, Eighth, Carolina and Channel, the California College of the Arts is planning to construct a new 96,000-square-foot academic building behind its existing San Francisco campus at 1111 8th Street and has engaged Studio Gang Architects for the design.
As proposed, the multi-tiered addition would rise up 58 feet in height, not including the roughly 11-foot-tall frames for PV arrays atop the three four-story pavilion structures, with art studios, design labs, classrooms and multiple outdoor and maker spaces below.
A 20,000-square-foot area at the easternmost end of the lot along 7th Street would remain vacant and reserved for potential future development, with plans for both hard and soft-scape improvements across the area in the interim, fenced by the shipping containers currently sitting on the western end site.
And as envisioned, CCA’s master plan, which includes a renovation of the college’s existing building at 1111 8th Street, would provide enough campus space and housing for CCA’s existing student body, inclusive of a shuttering of CCA’s Oakland campus. We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
