$180 million facelift under wayat san marcos high school
The $180 million modernization and reconstruction of San Marcos High School is one of the largest high school construction projects under way in California. Designed by the San Diego office of LPA Inc., plans for the new high school double the classroom space by 50%, resulting in a three-story, 412,000-sf facility with a central quad. A library reading center, career center, and student store will be located on the ground floor, while academic spaces are to be housed on the floors above. The project is being delivered through a lease-leaseback arrangement with Luscardi Construction.
