UC San Diego selected the Hensel Phelps + EYRC + HMC design-build team for their Ridge Walk North Living and Learning Neighborhood project. The $537 million, 972,000 SF design-build project will provide Thurgood Marshall College residents, faculty, staff and UC San Diego students endless opportunities to explore, discover and connect.
Three new residence halls will provide beds for over 2,450 Thurgood Marshall College students and will include amenities and gathering spaces for students to build community. The mixed-use neighborhood also includes an economics building, administration and community programs, a Basic Needs Center, E-Sports Center and Goody’s Cafe + Market. The project strengthens and connects the UC San Diego campus with revitalized nodes and plazas along Ridge Walk and key thoroughfares to the Historic Grove, Geisel Library and the heart of campus.
The Ridge Walk North Living and Learning Neighborhood will allow UC San Diego to lead the UC System toward a more sustainable future. With an all-electric design that features high-performance strategies, including low-flow water fixtures, increased access to views and daylight and durable materials, the Ridge Walk North Living and Learning Neighborhood is targeting LEED Gold certification.
