Phase I—Upgraded and Expanded Classroom Facilities: The northern portion of the Windward campus as currently developed has two main classroom buildings; one containing classroom space, and the other containing classroom, theater, and school administrative office space. In Phase I, Windward proposes to renovate and expand the classroom, theater, and administration building. This renovation and expansion will include upgrades to the School’s existing black box theater, the addition of visual arts educational facilities; including a new rehearsal space, a new dance room, and a new tech classroom; and administrative office space. A new pedestrian bridge will replace an existing wood pedestrian bridge to provide greater connectivity. The renovation and expansion of the existing building will result in approximately 9,664 net new square feet.
Phase II—Arts & Innovation Center: The key component of Windward’s Master Plan Update Project is a revision to the proposed auditorium that was originally approved in 1999. Windward has carefully considered the best location and design of a performing arts facility after receiving neighbor feedback, and has designed a new Arts & Innovation Center of approximately 58,187 square feet to be located on the site of the existing apartment building and related parking lot owned by the School.
Phase III—Student Gathering Plaza: The Master Plan Update Project contemplates a landscaped plaza in between the existing and proposed pedestrian bridges that will connect the campus over the Sepulveda Channel. The plaza will provide a student gathering space convenient to facilitating outdoor learning opportunities.
