Crews are readying the property at 2359 Harrison Street ahead of demolition for a 16-story mixed-use building in Northgate-Waverly, by downtown Oakland. Surface parking has been removed, and grading occurring ahead of excavation. Holland Partner Group is responsible for the development.
Holland purchased and merged eight separate parcels to make the development possible, including some buildings and surface parking. The five existing structures on-site are currently vacant, including a low-slung commercial building, single-family dwelling, two duplexes, and a ten-unit residential complex.
The 178-foot structure will yield 415,800 square feet, of which 234,400 square feet is for residential use, 13,200 square feet for retail, and 87,400 square feet for the 215-car parking capacity. Long-term parking will also be included for 165 bicycles. The L-shaped floor plates will include a 41-foot tall podium with seven private patios and a twin-space plaza with outdoor seating for dining and lounging. A rooftop courtyard on the 15th floor will also open up space with a barbeque pit, artificial-grass lawn, and fire pits.
Out of the 328 dwelling units, fifteen units will be designed as low-income. The proposal also entails creating a new foot plaza spanning approximately 6,800 square feet at 24th and Harrison Streets. Residential amenities will be the fitness center, dog run, public plaza, and open-air deck.

Petersen Studio is responsible for the landscape architecture, which includes the podium-topping amenity lounge and the foot plaza to be designed at 24th and Harrison Street.
