Development permits have been approved for the proposed 19-story mixed-use building at 1510 Webster Street in Downtown Oakland. The project includes the construction of a mixed-use residential structure with office and retail space. The Oakland-based oWow is operating as the project developer and architect through 1510 Webster LLC.
The 195-foot tall structure will sit on a 14,110 square foot parcel. The gross floor area is 193,290 square feet. A total of 182 market-rate and affordable residential units will be offered. The building will also contain 10,000 square feet of office space, and 3,590 square feet of retail space. 66 long-term and 14 short-term parking spaces will also be offered.
There are changes in the architectural and design elements in comparison to the design prior to the approval of the project. The tower mass intersects with the podium and is highlighted by the panel color change. The most recent renderings reveal a terra-cotta cladded facade in cream flush and aluminum for the building section from level two-six. From level seven and above, the exterior is a glass facade with metal panels. The building showcases aluminum windows, dark metal canopies and mullions.
The application approval was tipped off by twitter user John Smith.
The project site is located at opposite corners of downtown Oakland’s 15th and Webster streets. The building neighbors many retail and commercial stores, restaurants and businesses. The area is well-serviced by AC Transit bus lines 12, 14,29, 33, and 62.
