Permits have been filed seeking the approval of a residential project proposed at 5976 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland. The project proposal includes the development of four townhomes. Plans call for the demolition of an existing Wilco Supply building on the site.
Branagh Land, Inc is the project applicant. Hunt Hale Jones Architects is responsible for the design concepts. Gates & Associates is the landscape architect.
The project site is a parcel combining two parcels spanning an area of 25,037 square feet. The project proposes to bring four four-story townhome-style buildings offering twenty-three units. The proposed townhomes will be feature three two-bedroom and twenty three-bedroom units, yielding a total footprint of 11,926 square feet. The total residential built-up area is 46,409 square feet. Three of the total units will be reserved as affordable housing units.
The building facades will rise to a height of 45 feet. Parking space with a capacity of 23 vehicles and 2 bicycles will be designed on the site.
The filed permit also seeks the approval of the existing trees.
The project is under review and the estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.

More ugly housing with a mere three so called affordable units. When “affordable” is not really affordable, one hesitates to know the cost of the unaffordable units. Please reconsider this unfortunate project. Oakland does not need more unsightly lool alike inverted cartons blighting neighborhoods.
Please don’t obstruct this project. We are in a housing crisis because for the last 50 years in the bay area, good meaning people like yourself have fought against new housing. We are now at a crisis point. I get it Nancy, these buildings might seem ugly to you, but are they any uglier than 23 more people kicked out of their homes? this is 23 new housing units, that’s 23 groups of people who won’t need to outbid people for their existing homes. Unfortunately the only reliable and proven way out of a housing crisis is to increase the housing supply, through projects like this.
How do I get on the waiting list??
