USC Health Sciences Campus
The USC Health Sciences Campus is on the west side of the LA Bioscience Corridor, adjacent to a LAC+USC Medical Center. The Campus is also the target for millions of dollars in development in the coming years.
The USC Health Sciences Master Plan guides the campus’ growth and development as substantial investment comes into the area. The plan prepares the campus to better accommodate future needs for R&D, educational, and clinical lab space. The USC Health Sciences Campus Master Plan calls for more than 3.5 million square feet of new development over the next 25 years.
The plan has multiple pieces that will be carried out as needs and funding arise. The first installations of the master plan include:
- A 200 bed hotel with extended stay suites, plus retail and restaurants on the ground floor. Currently it is in the early development stages, it is expected to open in late 2016.
- A student housing project budgeted at $50 million is also in early development stages. In preparation for 157 unit development, the underground utilities to support the project are currently underway. The project aims to open with the new school year in fall 2016.
- The Norris Health Care Consultation Center, a 114,000 SF building focused on cancer treatment and research.
- A parking structure with more than 1,400 spaces to accommodate increases in patient care and academic activities.
- Phase I of a $35 million beautification project, which includes significant improvements to Hazard Park, streetscape, and campus signage.
