UC Berkeley Hotel
Berkeley, CA | hospitality
The UC Berkeley Hotel is proposed to be a 200-room, 10-floor high-rise hotel in the heart of Downtown Berkeley. The full-service upscale hotel would feature a wellness center open to the public, rooftop deck overlooking the Berkeley campus and San Francisco Bay, multiple food and beverage outlets, 13,000 sf of flexible meeting space, a lush garden featuring native plants, library meeting room and community gathering space. A key competent of this urban hotel concept is ground floor retail that will complement the overall essence of the property and will be leased out to local purveyors. Both unique and contemporary, yet respectful of its urban context and place, the UC Berkeley Hotel is designed to give form to the street on all three sides and provide an urban edge with contemporary warmth, depth, variety and human scale. The design is both representative of our time but in keeping with and fulfilling the original urban vision of Berkeley.
