The Nueva School Receives Design Approval to Build New Campus at Bay Meadows
January 3, 2013
On December 11, 2012, the San Mateo City Planning Commission granted SitePlan and Architectural Review (SPAR) approval to The Nueva School’s new high-school campus at Stockbridge and Wilson Meany’s Bay Meadows, California’s largest Transit Oriented Development (TOD). Designed by architectural firm Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects, the new high school will sit on 2.76 acres of the Bay Meadows development. The school will include classroom space, labs, a 425-seat theater, a gymnasium, and an underground parking garage.
The SPAR approval comes at an exciting time for Bay Meadows and for The Nueva School. Residential construction is under way at the development, which is a joint venture of Stockbridge Capital Group and Wilson Meany. The Bay Meadows Welcome Center is slated to open spring 2013, with real estate sales launching shortly thereafter. The Nueva School’s new high school will commence with its first class in fall 2013 at temporary facilities and will officially open at Bay Meadows in fall 2014.
“The SPAR approval for Nueva, a globally recognized leader in PreK-8 education, means Bay Meadows is one step closer to bringing this high school to this vibrant, new, mixed-use community,” said Chris Meany, partner at Wilson Meany. “Bay Meadows’ dedication to sustainable building practices and design is a perfect fit for Nueva, as the school applies the same thoughtful design principles to its LEED Gold-certified PreK-8 campus, creating a physical space that encourages learning, community and sustainability. This entire development is a testament to our advanced approach to living and working in the Bay Area.”
