Permits have been approved pending appeal for a six-story residential building at 3414 Andover Street in Pill Hill, Oakland. The development will replace a vacant single-family house with twenty new residences. Oakland-based DNZ Homes LLC is responsible for the development.
The 69-foot tall building will yield 27,740 square feet, with 18,030 square feet of residential space and 3,740 square feet for a fourteen-car garage. Of the twenty units, all be four will have access to private open space. However, all residences will have access to the roof deck with panoramic views and a rear yard.
Kotas Pantaleoni Architects is responsible for the design. The building features two bay windows covered with painted horizontal siding and aluminum panels raised from a cement plaster facade.
The existing two-story wood-frame building was constructed in 1903. Planning documents state it could be demolished or relocated similar to 807 Franklin Street and 600 1st Street. The property sold in July of 2020 for $800,000. Construction is expected to cost at least $3 million based on a previously filed similarly-sized proposal for 3414 Andover Street by Kotas Pantaleoni Architects.
The address is located on a cul de sac in walking distance of the retail-lined Broadway and Telegraph Avenue thoroughfares. The MacArthur BART station is fourteen minutes away on foot, while Downtown Oakland’s Lake Merritt park is 24 minutes away.
