SF State Project to Transform Tapia Drive into Pedestrian-Only Quad

Friday, September 14, 2018

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The new Liberal and Creative Arts Building currently under construction is just phase one of a four-phase SF State Master Plan that will eliminate Tapia Drive altogether and turn it into a quad, according to the Creative Arts and Holloway Mixed-Use Project Final Report issued in March 2017.

The LCA Building will cost $81 million and will replace the old Broadcast and Electronic Communications Arts (BECA) space in the 50-years-old Creative Arts Building. The space had “serious” deficiencies with regard to the Americans with Disabilities Act and building codes, according to a budget report by interim Vice President of Administration and Finance Ann M. Sherman.
