New permits have been filed to add a fourth floor to proposed townhouses at 1608-1618 32nd Street in the Clawson district of West Oakland. If approved, the construction will provide more housing in an area zoned for industrial, medium, and high-density residential developments. The plan will provide six residential units on top of a currently vacant lot. The neighborhood-based Dogtown Development Company is responsible for the project through Gold Standard Partners LLC.
ReMod Homes is responsible for the design. Renderings show the houses looking down onto a secure central shared driveway. The architects have clad the facades with white stucco, red-toned horizontal wood panels, and grey-brown vertical wood panels.
The 42-foot structure will yield 15,750 square feet for residential use, averaging 2,625 square feet per unit. The revision will provide four or more bedrooms, a 34% increase from the initial three-story proposal. This will allow the rooftop with new office space and an open-air deck with views across the low-rise neighborhood towards the Oakland and potentially San Francisco skyline.
Big Mill Partners, who use the same business address as Thousand Oaks Construction, is listed as the property owner. While initial three-story permits were approved, the revision application remain to be processed, and an estimated completion date has not been announced.
