Text size: A A

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has selected the city of Richmond as the site for its second campus. The Richmond Field Station is owned by the University of California and was one of six final sites under consideration by the LBNL.

The main LBNL campus, the first of the University of California’s Department of Energy laboratories, will remain at its current site in the Berkeley hills above Strawberry Canyon. The new Richmond campus will bring onto one site several existing labs that are now scattered throughout the East Bay.

The second campus would combine the LBNL’s energy and life sciences research cluster with the existing UC Berkeley Engineering research cluster on university-owned properties in Richmond’s southern waterfront area. The first phase of the second campus would include up to 500,000 sq ft of research space for LBNL and through later phases grow up to 2 million sq ft. Wallace Roberts & Todd (WRT) Design, San Francisco, is the architect on the project.
