La Salle High School Master Plan

3880 East Sierra Madre Blvd.


The proposed project is a Master Plan for La Salle High School, which is located at 3880 E. Sierra Madre Boulevard (at Michillinda Avenue) in the City of Pasadena, Los Angeles County, CA. The proposed Master Plan is a three-phased, 15-year Master Plan for the construction of athletic and performance arts facilities for La Salle High School. The project includes the demolition of two existing buildings, removal of an existing baseball field, renovation of an existing classroom building, and construction of five new buildings, consisting of a Classroom Building, new Practice Gym, Aquatic Center, Performance Arts and Sound Stage building and a Field house, resulting in a net increase of 83,874 square feet. The project also includes a new outdoor swimming pool with an associated sound wall, reconfiguration of an existing surface parking lot (north parking lot), a new surface parking lot (south parking lot), landscaping and the removal of two protected trees. No increase in student enrollment is proposed; the existing permitted enrollment capacity would remain at 780 students. The number of faculty would increase from 90 to 95.

The site is comprised of a 10-acre sloping property with five existing separate buildings, three of which would be retained. A storage structure and a classroom/locker structure are proposed to be demolished. Generally, the existing and new buildings are concentrated at the eastern end of the property, with an existing open track and football field area occupying the western end. There are two existing surface parking lots: one located along the northern edge of the site along East Sierra Madre Boulevard, extending from the westerly property line to the western edge of the existing gymnasium; and the second located in the south-eastern portion of the site, accessed from Michillinda Street. A slope of approximately 15 feet descends from the northerly parking lot down to the track and football field area. At full build-out, La Salle High School will have a total gross floor area of 179,375 square feet.
