On the outskirts of its Westwood campus, UCLA continues to make progress on more than $870 million in new student housing facilities.
At 900 Weyburn Place, the vertical construction is now complete for the Southwest Campus Apartments, with exterior finishes beginning to take shape. The trio of concrete-frame buildings - standing between eight and ten stories in height - will provide housing for 2,279 upper-division undergraduate students and graduate students in a mix of two-, three-, and four-bedroom dwellings.
Completion of the $383-million complex was previously expected in the second half of 2022.
Just east at the intersection of Le Conte and Gayley Avenues, the 10995 Le Conte Avenue Apartments are nearing the finish line at the former site of a UCLA Extension office building.
The 17-story high-rise building, which uses tiered building heights to offset its mass, will include 1,167 beds for upper-division graduate students.
The $210-million project was most recently slated for completion in late 2021.
At the northwest corner of the UCLA campus, construction is also underway $237-million dormitory at the former site of Parking Lot 15.
The residence hall, designed by Mithun, is composed of two eight-story structures containing 1,781 beds for first- and second-year undergraduate students.
The $237-million project is also poised for completion in late 2021.
In total, UCLA's planning housing facilities will offer beds for more than 5,400 students. One of its new facilities - a 10-story building at 885 Levering Avenue with capacity for 216 residents - was completed more than a year ago.
Other additions to the school's student housing portfolio are located far from campus. The University of California recently purchased a series of completed and under-construction apartment buildings in Sawtelle to use as UCLA dormitories.
