Plans for a twelve-unit townhouse project are expected to be approved with conditions by the City of Oakland’s planning department. The project will replace existing industrial buildings and a vacant house with three structures and a detached community facility at 2420-2432 Chestnut Street and 2423 Linden Street in West Oakland, in walking distance from the De Fremery Park. Riaz Capital is responsible for the development.
Construction will rise 40 feet above street level, covering 40% of the 19,800 square foot parcel to produce 26,600 square feet of build area. Residencies will have an average size of over two thousand square feet. Parking is included on-site for 12 vehicles and three bicycles.
Levy Design Partners is the project architect. In a design review application, the firm says of the proposed buildings, “the three story townhouse configuration conforms to the massing of the adjacent warehouse and light industrial buildings to the east and north of the project site, the proposed materials and textures relates to the adjacent two residential buildings to the south.” Each of the residences will have main entrances opening up to a landscaped walkway, with parking in the parcel’s interior.
New building permits have not yet been filed, and an estimated completion date has not been released. The development will be reviewed in the meeting April 7th at 3 PM. For more information, visit the meeting agenda here.
