UC Berkeley certainly seems to be on a building spree these days with several new buildings under construction or recently completed. Another project to add to the list is the brand new California Aquatic Center that is going up at 2222 Bancroft near the corner of Bancroft Way and Fulton Street, just a block east of Shattuck. The project is rising on what used to be a surface parking lot just west of the University Health Service Tang Center.

The facility will include 3 one-story structures, a 52 meter pool as well as a diving tower. Designs for the complex come from ELS architects which has worked on many different college sports facilities at several universities in California. Most notably, the firm also designed the aquatic center of crossbay rival Stanford University. The new facility is funded entirely by private donations and is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2016.
