New development permits have been filed for a new four-story garage at 3903 Broadway in Mosswood, Oakland. The property spans from Broadway to Manila Avenue, including the existing Masonic Temple office building to remain. The parking garage will let off to Manila, creating 219 parking spaces for office employees. Meridian is responsible for the project as the real estate developer.
The application is filed using Meridian Property Ventures II LLC, based in Walnut Creek. Meridian specialized in developments for healthcare and general office buildings. The Oakland Masonic Temple Association is responsible for the development as the property owner.
The 40-foot tall structure will yield 80,220 square feet. Of the 57 parking spaces at ground level, seven will be ADA accessible. Levels two and three will each contain 73 spaces, while the top floor will contain 16 parking spaces. SmithGroup, an international architecture firm with an office in San Francisco, is responsible for the design.
The property will be located by several Kaiser properties between Broadway and Piedmont Avenue. The garage and office are also just north of Pill Hill. I-580 separates 3903 Broadway from the neighborhood known for its high density of medical institutions.
