The University of California wanted to revitalize the Lower Sproul area, which houses their student union complex. The redevelopment project includes demolishing and replacing Eshleman Hall and renovating the Chavez Student Center, as well as upgrading the MLK Jr. Student Union Building and expanding it with two new two-story additions. SGH assisted with the building enclosure design for the plaza level and surrounding buildings.
