The Future of Lanterman

Lanterman

Cal Poly Pomona intends to embark on an ambitious and long range plan in conjunction with a master developer to revitalize the former Lanterman site into a thriving and active community that allows people to live, learn, work, play. The university and master developer will seek input from the community as we explore this unique opportunity for the region. The guiding principle is that the development support and advance the university’s educational mission and values, and benefit the surrounding communities.

Cal Poly Pomona was engaged in discussions with FivePoint as a master developer to partner in revitalizing the former Lanterman site into a thriving live, learn, work, and play community.   However, FivePoint informed the university that it could no longer serve as the development partner, due to senior leadership changes within its organization.

About Lanterman

The site, once operated by the California Department of Developmental Services, became available to Cal Poly Pomona in 2016 through a Memorandum of Understanding with the state. After a year of study and analysis, the university informed the CSU Board of Trustees that it was interested in undertaking the process to secure the property and begin the steps to identify a master developer to manage the process. Here is a timeline of the process.
