UCSD Winter 2021 Planning, Design and Construction: What to Expect on Campus

Construction of the UC San Diego (UCSD) Theatre District Living and Learning Neighborhood began in January and will continue through the opening of the neighborhood in the fall of 2023. The Theatre District Living and Learning Neighborhood includes five buildings adjacent to UC San Diego’s Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theatre District (at intersection of Torrey Pines Road and La Jolla Village Drive). It will provide new housing for undergraduate students, academic and meeting spaces, restaurants and retail space. More information about this and other projects at UC San Diego is available at plandesignbuild.ucsd.edu.

As posted on the UC San Diego Planning, Design and Construction website: Through innovative design, UC San Diego’s transformational projects inspire and deliver UC San Diego’s vision of the future. With the focus on creating new and better ways of collaborating across groups and disciplines, new construction projects revolutionize the physical, cultural, intellectual, healthcare, patient care, research, residential and diversity of the UC San Diego and Hillcrest campuses.

Design elements focus on UC San Diego’s commitment to the student, staff, faculty, patient, visitor and community experience by creating healthy inclusive and collaborative living, learning, teaching, working and playing mixed-use spaces that promote local and global excellence.

Current campus projects include: Central Utilities Plant Expansion, Design and Innovation Building, Downtown Park & Market “The U”, Fire Station, Franklin Antonio Hall, Hillcrest Outpatient Pavilion and Parking Structure, Marine Conservation and Technology Facility, North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood, Pepper Canyon Amphitheater and Public Realm Improvements, Revelle College Seismic Improvements: Mayer Hall and York Hall, Ridge Walk Improvements, Scripps Ocean-Atmosphere Research Simulator (SOARS), Theatre District Living and Learning Neighborhood, and University Center Public Realm Improvements.
