HAYWARD, CA-California State University at Hayward wants to add its first new building in nearly 30 years – one that would showcase the campus’s location at the northern end of Silicon Valley.

If built, the $20 million Business and Technology Center would boast Internet, wireless, and satellite connections as well as resource rooms and conference and lecture halls. School officials have said they would like to see the 100,000-sf building become reality by 2004. Corporations, individuals and state officials have already pledged a total of $16 million.

Now the school is undertaking a $4 million funding drive targeting private sources. Among the contributions thus far are $5 million from former area residential developer Wayne Valley’s foundation, plus $100,000 from telecommunications provider Pacific Bell.
