First Project of Corner Lot
The Wellness Center—the first building for the long-awaited corner lot development—is reaching a critical juncture, and we need your ideas and feedback.
Designed to be a new, welcoming gateway for the community, the Wellness Center will be built at one of the busiest traffic intersections in Chula Vista. Gensler architects have developed preliminary drawings and are in the process of showing the building within the context of the construction site. But it is important that the architects hear from our college community to ensure the design is reflective of our unique style.
The architects have been working closely with the user group responsible for providing their programming perspectives. Last week, members of the HESA faculty and staff got their first look of the building.
I’m hoping that you will join me and members of the SCC for a special open forum on Wednesday from 4-5 p.m. in L238 N/S to see the preliminary design. Your ideas and feedback will help guide changes and serve as a foundation for the entity that will eventually be hired to operate the center. (An RFP has been issued for the center operator.)
You may also attend the community forum we are having on Oct. 30 from 7-9 a.m. in Student Union East. If you plan to attend the community forum, please RSVP to email@example.com by Oct. 24.
Wellness Center preliminary design
My coffee chat goes on the road this week when I visit the Higher Education Center in National City. We’ll be meeting in the student center from 10 – 11 a.m.
I’ve received some great ideas from my previous coffee chats, and I look forward to hearing from our faculty, staff and students at the HEC National City.
