The CCSN master plan for the Charleston Campus calls for a phased development to achieve the highest and best educational use of the campus property. The ultimate project buildout will more than triple campus capacity.
The initial development phase of 250,000 square feet of new educational facilities will complete surface development of existing property and create a vehicular campus loop linking College Drive with Torrey Pines Drive. Surface parking will surround a pedestrian campus island. A series of unique student plazas will provide outdoor student areas and pedestrian access into campus buildings. A new central plant and utility corridor will be developed to the west of all initial campus buildings. Temporary athletic fields will landbank property for future campus development.
The Charleston Campus buildout plan provides an additional 250,000 square feet of educational facilities with a two-level parking structure on the south edge of the campus property. It also complements neighboring development. Future campus buildings along Torrey Pines will create a “pedestrian mall” between existing and new buildings to provide quicker pedestrian campus movement and service-only access to campus buildings.
