Permits have been filed to construct a new five-story storage facility at 2390 Mariner Square Driver, Marina Village, overlooking the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland. The 72-foot tall structure will yield 110,844 square feet to the Alameda island, though it will likely also appeal to Oakland residents. Banner Real Estate Group is responsible for the development.
These recently filed permits come six months after the building went to the Alameda planning board. The building requested to reduce the parking requirements from seventy down to roughly twenty spots intended for larger storage transit vehicles and five single-family cars. This request is in a bid to maximize land use efficiency. Based on the March filing, at least four hundred storage units will be created. They will range in size from 5×5′ to 10×30′.
Sullivan Goulette Wilson LTD is responsible for the design. The Michigan-based firm proposes metal-paneling skin with greyscale colors. It’s feature design element is the curtain-wall corner that has become a staple for modern Bay Area development. The style fits in with the existing precedent with Banner Real Estate’s long roster of storage buildings across the country.
An estimated completion date has not been announced.
