After 26 months of construction, Clark Construction delivered the transformative North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood at University of California San Diego (UCSD), fulfilling UCSD’s vision of a fully integrated university community.
Spanning seven buildings, the community is the new home to Sixth College and features four residential halls, each named after a symbol from La Jolla’s natural landscape, that will house 2,000 undergraduates. Open air spaces connect residences, academic facilities, parking, retail, a dining hall, and a market. Within the new neighborhood are the Arts and Humanities Building, the Social Sciences Public Engagement Building, and the Craft Center, a space for non-curricular classes that will engage the campus and surrounding community.
Construction on the 1.2-million-square-foot, design-build project began in June 2018 as part of the largest campus expansion project in UC San Diego’s history. The Clark team’s work enables UCSD to accommodate its increasing student enrollment, which recently surpassed 40,000. Clark is also constructing the university’s Pepper Canyon West Student Housing complex, which will span more than six acres at the center of campus and provide approximately 1,600 new beds.
