Project Overview

A $1.3 Billion public-private project set to deliver to UC Merced 1.2 million sf of teaching, research, residential and student-support facilities by 2020.  The buildings will be designed to support "Triple Net Zero" goals of zero net energy use, landfill waste and greenhouse gas emissions.  This project is a pioneer for the UC system to use a single private development team to design, build and finance the project that will allow the UC campus to accommodate more of the 22,000 students that apply for admission every year.
