1 AGENDA – PUBLIC FORUM October 12, Welcome and Background – Rod Lehnertz 2.Site Evaluation Progress Report – Joe Hibbard 3.Public Discussion 4.Closing

2 Site Evaluation Studies for Hancher Voxman Clapp Replacement Facilities University of Iowa October 12, 2009

3 Alternative Sites for HVC Replacement Facilities March 6,2009

4 Site Selection Criteria LAND 1.Ownership status 2.Site size 3.Site shape 4.Expansion potential 5.Utilities availability 6.Topography, flood exposure 7.Proximity to related programs 8.Existing use and possible displacements 9.Competition for future University uses CIRCULATION 10. Vehicular access and traffic impacts 11. Parking availability; event and daily use 12. Service access 13. CAMBUS access 14. Pedestrian access SENSORY ENVIRONMENT 15. Appropriateness of architectural scale and massing 16. Views and visual impacts 17. Open space impacts 18. Image and character 19. Symbolic associations – historical and cultural values 20. Potential for creation of quality outdoor spaces 21. Solar exposure, shadow and microclimate impacts

5 Viable Site Options West site East site Burlington Street Clinton Street Park Road

6 Factors Identified for Additional Study, after the First Phase of the Site Selection Process : Site Organization and Site Development Costs Possible Variations in Building Mechanical System Costs Utility Services Traffic Impacts Daily Parking, Event Parking and School Bus Parking Service Access to Buildings Sound Isolation Flood Exposure Campus Land Use

7 Site Selection Assumptions The HVC building program requirement for site testing purposes will be 418,881 gsf, and parking demand will be 1400 spaces Ideally, Hancher, Voxman and Clapp should be located together as a single complex on a single site, however a split program option should be explored to determine if site location advantages can be achieved. The School of Music should be within reasonable walking distance of the undergraduate classroom core of the campus

8 Site Selection Assumptions The HVC building program requirement for site testing purposes will be 418,881 gsf, and parking demand will be 1400 spaces Ideally, Hancher, Voxman and Clapp should be located together as a single complex on a single site, however a split program option should be explored to determine if site location advantages can be achieved. The School of Music should be within reasonable walking distance of the undergraduate classroom core of the campus

9 HVC Building Program Requirements Used in the Site Evaluation Process – ( Total Program 418,881 gsf) Hancher Component: 159,971gsf 38% Hancher Auditorium – 2100 Seat Hall and associated flexible rehearsal space Principally a public oriented performance facility Does not necessarily require a site within the undergraduate core area School of Music Component: 258,910 gsf 62% Academic space plus four performance Halls totaling 1600 seats Principally an academic teaching and performance facility Favors a location close to the undergraduate core area

10 HVC Parking Program Requirements Used in the Site Evaluation Process Existing parking serving HVC and Theatre Building 1018 spaces Proposed West Site Parking = 1211 to 1400 spaces Proposed East Site Parking = 982 to 1156 spaces Proposed Split Option Parking = West 901, East 500, total 1401

11 Inundation Limits Used in the Site Evaluation Process 55,000 CFS is a working estimate of the 500 year flow. A final determination will be made in the the 2009 Corps of Engineers Iowa River Basin Hydrologic Study. University Flood Mitigation Task Force Guidelines: No buildings shall be located in the 500 year flood plain All building space below 500 year plus 2 feet elevation must be easily evacuated and recovered. (2008 Flood was 42,000 CFS) 55,000 CFS INUNDATION

12 Option 1 West site Burlington Street Clinton Street Park Road HVC

13 Option 2 East site Burlington Street Clinton Street Park Road

14 Option 3 West site East site Burlington Street Clinton Street Park Road H VC

15 Factors that tend to be neutral in decision making: Adequacy of Land Area Flood Protection Traffic Operations School Bus Logistics Parking Capacity Availability of CAMBUS Service Provision of adequate Service Access for Buildings Sound Isolation Site Organization Factors Building Costs Differentiating Factors: Parking Operations and Parking Construction Costs Utility Construction Costs Site Development Construction Costs Land Acquisition Costs Program Displacement Costs Campus Land Use

16 West Site

17 West Site Existing Conditions Map

18 Option 1A, Full Program at West Site with Surface Parking

19 Option 1B, Full Program at West Site with Deck Parking

20 Option 1C, Full Program at West Site with Parking Ramp

21 Option 1A, 1B, 1C: Full Program at West Site ADVANTAGES Site is owned by University No program displacements Prominent visibility of Hancher from Dubuque St. and Park Rd. Continues the historic association of HVC with the attractive landscape of the Iowa River corridor Clear wayfinding from 1-80 for Hancher Land available for possible geothermal well fields ISSUES Distance of the School of Music from the undergraduate classroom core and student services Higher utility costs and site development costs than Option 2 Will require building new surface or ramp parking spaces. Higher construction costs for parking than Option 2 Parking will be somewhat more distant from the Hancher front door because of site constraints Functional and visual impacts on Levitt Center Impacts on river park green space if a ramp is not built

22 East Site

23 East Site Existing Conditions Map

24 Option 2, Full Program at East Site

25 ADVANTAGES Close to undergraduate classroom core, student services and support functions in downtown Creates a continuity of the campus extending south directly from Old Capitol Facilitates a pedestrian oriented campus Served by City transit and CAMBUS Tangible contribution to vibrancy of the east campus and downtown Least cost option for parking, utilities and site costs ISSUES Requires acquisition of land, highest land cost Displacement of the Engineering Research Building Will require more active management of parking for large events Perceived concerns with wayfinding from 1-80 for Hancher Potential concerns with ramp exiting after events, compared to Option 1

26 Option 3, Split Program, Hancher West and Voxman - Clapp East

27

28 Option 3 Split Program: Hancher West, Voxman Clapp East ADVANTAGES School of Music is close to undergraduate classroom core, student services and support functions in downtown Creates a continuity of the campus extending south directly from Old Capitol Facilitates a pedestrian oriented campus Contribution to vibrancy of the east campus and downtown Prominent visibility of Hancher from Dubuque St. and Park Rd Disperses traffic and parking demands Served by City transit and CAMBUS ISSUES Requires acquisition of land Will require more active management of parking for large events Costs for utilities and for site development than Option 2 Logistics for movement between Hancher and the School of Music is more difficult than other Options

29 Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Summary of Options

30 Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 UTILITIES $3.2M $1.2M $3.4M $3.2M

31 Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 PARKING $7M $0 $6.4M $12.5M $19.2M

32 Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 SITE DEVELOPMENT $7M $4.4M $9.2M $9.4M $9.1M

33 Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 PROGRAM DISPLACEMENT $0 $7.9M $0

34 Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 LAND ACQUISITION $0 6 PARCELS 4 PARCELS $0
