University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry has hired leading real estate services and investment firm Grubb & Ellis Company (NYSE:GBE) to perform real estate consulting services as part of the school's feasibility study focused on the future of its facilities.
Grubb & Ellis' San Francisco team, headed by Daniel Cressman, will provide local market research, inventory analysis, asset evaluation of school facilities, brokerage and other services to be used by the school as it evaluates options for new facilities. The dental school currently owns and occupies more than 320,000 square feet of real estate in two buildings in San Francisco. The school occupies approximately 202,000 square feet of space at 2155 Webster Street, which is used for classrooms and offices, and 119,000 square feet of space at 2130 Post Street, which is dedicated to student housing.
As part of a comprehensive study to help chart its future in the Bay Area, the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is in the midst of a pre-design space planning and facility programming project led by interdisciplinary design firm, Kahler Slater. The project is addressing the school's current and anticipated needs, including flexible learning environments, dental clinics, community and event space, student housing and other areas. The study involves gathering input from a wide range of students, faculty, staff, patients, administrators and other members of the school community. The feasibility project will assist University of the Pacific as it works with Grubb & Ellis in evaluating possible sites for the dental school's location and construction.
