Long Beach City College (LBCC) officially breaks ground today on a new $23.4M building at its Pacific Coast Campus that will be dedicated entirely to student services.
The 31,698 sq. ft., LEED-certified building—funded by Measure E bonds that were passed in 2002 and 2008—will feature a new dining area, full service kitchen, multi-purpose room, and barbeque area in the building’s center courtyard. It replaces the GG building, which once housed the campus’s library and cafeteria.
The design, by Roesling Nakamura Terada Architects, Inc., gorgeously harkens to the post-and-beam style of Long Beach architectural veteran Edward Killingsworth (who created the master plan for Cal State Long Beach) along with playing with geometric shapes and angles.
The building is expected to reach completion within 18 months.
