It is the largest project completed as part of San Diego Community College District‘s $1.55 billion Propositions S and N construction bond program, according to district officials.

The energy-efficient building includes classrooms, computer classrooms, teaching lab classrooms and faculty, staff and administrative support space. Specialty spaces include a greenhouse and astronomy observation center.

Exterior landscaping features globally-themed gardens, including an Australian garden and a South African garden.

The project is on track to obtain a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification from the United States Green Building Council.
