California- The University of California (UC) and city of Sacramento have approved a preliminary design for Aggie Square, a new innovation hub to be built on the university’s Sacramento campus. The preliminary design is a necessary part of Aggie Square’s next step – issuing a request for qualifications (RFQ) to developers sometime in June. A request for proposals (RFP) is slated for later in the summer with the goal of selecting a developer in the fall.

The design kicks off the first phase of the project’s development, encompassing approximately 8 acres of the project’s 25-acre footprint. The first phase includes two new parking structures, one to replace parking that is lost to development and another to accommodate growth. Other projects include an office/classroom building dedicated to lifelong learning, two research buildings, a mixed-use building that will include storefront space, a mobility hub and a public square.
