Development permits have been filed for a proposed new warehouse at 3600 Alameda Avenue, located by the tidal canal separating Oakland and Alameda. The project will rise 51 feet high to yield 427,600 square feet of floor area. Indianapolis-based Duke Realty is responsible for the application.
The project includes the demolition of 16 existing industrial warehouse and office buildings containing nearly 1.2 million square feet. The new structure will be a concrete tilt-up industrial warehouse and office building. Parking will be included on-site for 284 vehicles and 254 truck trailers. Improvements will be added to existing driveways along nearby streets, and new extensions to connect East 7thn Street with Boehmer Street and 37th Avenue to Alameda Avenue.
The speculative warehouse will hope to attract manufacturing, R&D, distribution functions, or a mix of uses. The property will also receive landscaping treatment. Owens Brockway Glass Container Inc, an Ohio firm, is listed as the property owner.
HPA Architecture is responsible for the design. Facade materials will include painted concrete, metal rain screens, brick, glazed windows, and black painted steel beams.
