New Home for California’s Air Resources Board


A new headquarters location for California’s Air Resources Board (ARB) will be built in Riverside. 

When the facility is completed, the ARB headquarters will be relocated from its current, aging facility in El Monte to its new home in Riverside. The planned 400,000-square-foot facility will be built on 19 acres of vacant land owned by UC Riverside along Iowa Avenue, between Martin Luther King Boulevard and University Avenue. 

When the agency revealed its drawings for the new facility last week, Nichols said, “This striking design will make [ARB’s] new Southern California headquarters an immediately recognizable landmark.” 

According to Nichols, the design incorporates the highest standards of sustainability in its office and public spaces. It also, “meets the exacting laboratory specifications we need to keep California at the forefront of our world-leading efforts to clean up our air and fight climate change,” she stressed. 

The project will include space for new emissions testing methods for future generations of vehicles. It will also house advanced diagnostics technology, a chemistry lab, administrative offices and an auditorium with capacity to seat 250 people. Construction will start in 2018 and the will be completed in 2021. 

California’s ARB is charged with protecting the public from the harmful effects of air pollution and developing programs and actions to fight climate change. From requirements for clean cars and fuels to adopting innovative solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, under the stewardship of the ARB, California has pioneered a range of effective approaches that have set the standard for effective air and climate programs for the nation, and the world.
