Los Angeles Valley College is constructing a $90.5 million academic complex

Sept. 8, 2021
Academic Complex 1 will have 36 classrooms, computer labs and 90 faculty and staff offices.

Students at Los Angeles Valley College will no longer be attending classes in in bungalows strung across the campus thanks to construction of a new academic complex. 

The college is demolishing the 1950s-era bungalows to make way for the new facility, reports Los Angeles Daily News.

Each bungalow was a different size and built on a raised foundation. They were originally built to last 10 years, according to school officials.

The $90.5 million facility to replace the bungalows will be known as Academic Complex 1 and will have 36 classrooms, computer labs and 90 faculty and staff offices.

The 80,000-square-foot building will have natural atrium ventilation, forest-certified hardwood stairs and drought-tolerant landscaping. It is designed to be LEED certified.

Revitalization of the historic quad is also planned along with a new entrance onto the campus from Burbank Boulevard.

Construction is expected to be completed in 2025.
