City officials have approved a new development plan for the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena which will add as many as 1,500 new student housing beds meant to relieve overcrowding at the college.

Plans include a series of eight-story buildings, designed by Michael Maltzan Architecture. In addition to renovating some of the existing buildings, the project would also involve building a 300-seat theater, art galleries, more classrooms and a library, Urbanize reported.

The city also approved the construction of an elevated quad and pedestrian bridge on the campus. Renderings portray a downward sloping park-style area with landscaped trees.

The new construction is expected to occur at the South campus, located at the corner of Raymond and Glenarm streets. Meanwhile, the Hillside campus will see some minor functional improvements, such as new solar panels in parking lots.

A developer has yet to be named for the expansion, which is expected to take place over the next 15 years.

Plans for the expansion were first submitted three years ago as a means to reduce some of the overcrowding at Hillside campus and better connect the two Pasadena campuses.

The ArtCenter is a nonprofit, private college in Pasadena that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in film, transportation design and graphic design, among other creative fields. About 2,100 students attend the 88-year-old college. [Urbanize] — Natalie Hoberman
