Proposal Overview

Vision for the Future

Many of the buildings on our campus haven’t been renovated since the 1960’s. We are seeking permission from the City to build new and modern learning spaces for our students that will last for generations while better integrating with the aesthetic of the neighborhood. We are committed to an open and transparent process with ample room for feedback to allow for strong community and neighborhood engagement.

Since we filed the amended Conditional Use Permit (CUP) application in June 2016, we have made several changes to the plan in response to neighbor input including relocating the underground garage exit and reworking the building’s footprint to preserve more trees.
