Development permits have been filed and approved for a six-story residential development at 2116 Brush Street in Ralph Bunche, West Oakland. The project will transform a currently vacant parcel on Downtown Oakland’s border and just under fifteen minutes walk from the 19th Street Oakland BART station. Oak Brook Partners is responsible for the development, dubbed Villa Oakland.

The 68-foot structure will yield just under 90,000 square feet, 72,580 square feet dedicated to residential use. Its 95 apartments will be sold as affordable housing. 61 units will be sold to households making between 50-80% of the Area Median Income (AMI), and the remaining 34 units will be for people earning less than 30% AMI. The ground-level will include 1,550 square feet of retail, 7,200 square feet for 26 vehicle parking spaces, and 913 square feet to store 108 bicycles. Offices and a classroom are included to assist the functioning of supportive housing.

In their planning documents, the developers write that “Housing will partially be considered supportive housing for transitional aged youth soon to be or recently emancipated from the Alameda County Foster Care System.” The project, therefore, has a reduced parking requirement to 26 vehicles and decreased open space requirements.

Lowney Architecture is behind the design and the landscaping of the project. Painted concrete will serve as the defining ornament, with a gradient of blues beside electric lime. The ground level landscaping proposal features four large Pin Oak trees. The street-side, second-level, and rooftop are covered with grasses, vine maple, wild rose, a crape myrtle, and drought-resistant bushes.
