Mater Dei Parking Structure and Classroom Expansion

Project Manager: Vince Fregoso
Phone: (714) 667-2713

Project Description:

The proposed project involves the construction of a three-level parking structure east of the school’s existing campus (east of the existing football and soccer fields) and a two-story classroom building within the boundaries of the existing campus (west and south of classroom buildings 100 and 600). No change to the school’s existing operations would occur; however, maximum student enrollment is proposed to be increased from 2,200 students to 2,500 students. The addition of the proposed parking structure would increase the size of the campus from approximately 21 acres to 25 acres.Aerial

The proposed parking structure would provide 990 parking spaces in three levels. The parking structure would have a maximum height of 30 feet. No subterranean levels are proposed. Construction of the parking structure would involve the voluntary acquisition of 19 existing single-family residential units by the Project Applicant. Baker Street, between St. Andrew Place and Berkeley Street, would be vacated, providing access from St. Andrew Place to the parking structure and surface parking lot to the north along a new Monarch Way extension. Additionally, a portion of Occidental Street and Berkeley Street (approximately 250 feet), between Baker Street and the proposed property line, would also be vacated. Occidental Street and Berkeley Street are proposed to terminate at the eastern boundary of the parking structure at a new public alley that would allow for adequate fire access and connectivity between the two roadways.

The two-story classroom building would be located within the interior of the existing campus, to the west and south of classroom buildings 100 and 600 and to the north of the swimming pool. The proposed classroom building would replace Buildings 300 and 500, resulting in the replacement of 21,240 square feet of existing classroom space with 30,820 square feet of new classroom space. The building would include 32 classrooms with a maximum height of 44 feet. This architecture and design of the new classroom building would emulate the existing two-story Academic Services Complex located at the corner of Edinger Avenue and Bristol Street, which features stucco and concrete block construction
