New building permits have been filed to construct four single-unit structures at 3559-3589 Coolidge Avenue, located in Oakland’s Dimond District. The project was approved in 2018, at which time the previous owners sold the entitlement for nearly half a million dollars. Planning permits were filed in 2019 for a three-unit plan by Ripple Ideas LLC, but the filing remains incomplete, and the new building applications show the four-unit plan moving forward.
The four units will rise three floors each, yielding a combined 6,950 square feet. The structure furthest from the street, labeled the purple house, is the largest and most expensive at $850,000 for 1,900 square feet. Residents will have three bedrooms and three baths, a master suite terrace, parking space, a private backyard, and an available portion of land for adding a garage or ADU.
Baran Studio Architecture is responsible for the four-structure proposal. Inside the parcel, the front three structures look inward to a shared central courtyard. The residents will have a communal area with stone pavers and landscaping. The contemporary design embodies the articulation often seen in new construction and utilized on a small scale to make unique floor plates.
An estimated completion date has not yet been announced, though construction can be expected to last 18-24 months from groundbreaking to move-in. Permit estimates show the project will cost around $1.7 million to build, while housing value is expected to reach $3.24 million.
The project is near the retail-lined MacArthur Boulevard, parallel with I-580 and close to the destination intersection with Fruitvale Avenue. The Fruitvale BART station is eight minutes away by car, and just over twenty minutes by AC Transit buses.
