With UC Davis charting the course to establish itself as a permanent influencer in the Greater Sacramento region’s economy, Aggie Square is poised to increase and encourage innovation as well as elevate the community through an intense focus on workforce development and job creation.
The first phase of Aggie Square, which covers eight acres of the project’s 25-acre footprint ties directly to a theme that reflects both a community priority and a university strength. Those elements include:
- An office/classroom building dedicated to “lifelong learning” — workforce and skills training for competitive, in-demand jobs;
- Two research buildings that will offer state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for life sciences, technology and engineering;
- A mixed-use building that will include “storefront” space for community groups and university projects, student and affiliate housing and retail spaces connected to an outdoor market plaza that focuses on food and health
- And a public square that connects all the buildings and provides open, accessible space for community gatherings
The concept of Aggie Square creates a unique and timely opportunity to more strongly and cohesively integrate UC Davis into Greater Sacramento’s economy, creating a mission-based effort to address economic trends in the market, strengthen the impact of the university and create shared values and responsibility around the future prosperity of the region and UC Davis graduates.
