Lakeshore Campus Building/Renovations

Project Description:

The goal of the new College of Lake County Lakeshore expansion is to address a number of aesthetic and functional design challenges of the existing campus and the downtown Waukegan environment. Functionally, the project provides needed new classrooms and space for One-Stop Enrollment Services, Life Sciences, Library Adult Education, Administration, and Child Care. Additionally the existing buildings will be upgraded with new finishes and upgraded infrastructure. Additional space for student interaction including the availability of food options will be provided.

The overall plan for the campus creates a sense of place by developing a consistent image for the new and existing buildings and physically connecting them to all the program elements. The plan calls for developing an aesthetic for the new building and the existing 111 North Genesee building that complements the historic Globe Building (33 North Genesee). The facades on the 111 North Genesee building will be upgraded and the new building design has been sympathetically designed to consider the scale, massing, color, and materials of the existing Globe Building. The new building will also form a physical link between the existing City garage and the Globe building to insure security and comfort for the students attending the college.

The new and existing campus buildings will be centered on a redeveloped pedestrian “Quad” planned in the current Madison St. right of way. The Quad will feature outdoor student seating areas, newly developed green space, a student drop off circle drive, and short term parking spaces. The design also integrates and complements the existing downtown Waukegan streetscape design through the use of similar hardscape and plant material. A new campus gateway (renovated existing pedestrian overpass) defines the entry to this redeveloped public zone from Genesee St. and gracefully expresses the fresh new contemporary image of the campus.

The project carefully and successfully responds to the multiple needs and goals of the College of Lake County and the City of the Waukegan through a sympathetic, comprehensive development that will enhance the existing  campus and downtown environment.
