The Foothill-De Anza Community College District last week took a major step toward opening a new campus at the former Onizuka Air Force Station in northern California after selecting a general contractor for a planned $25 million education center. The district plans to acquire 9.2 acres of Onizuka at no cost for the multi-story structure slated to house classrooms, conference rooms, offices and food services. Construction is scheduled to take about three years, reported School Construction News. The Air Force station, located in Sunnyvale, closed following the last round of base closures. The city is the designated local redevelopment authority and is working with the Veterans Affairs Department to develop the remainder of the 23-acre site.
