Holliday Development has filed a new building permit for the five-story residential development addressed 2121 Wood Street in West Oakland. The application comes after the developer filed for an extension in late-2020, and withdrew permits earlier this year. If built, the project will add 235 new apartments to the city.
The five-story structure will yield 194,830 square feet from the 2.5-acre site, with 130,070 square feet for residential use, 18,300 square feet for a commercial/flex space, and on-site parking stackers with a capacity for 239 vehicles.
David Baker Architects is responsible for the design, with EinwillerKuehl as the landscape architect. Murphy Burr Curry is the structural engineer. The building uses factory-built modular design, a process that expedites construction speed and lowers carbon emissions. The facade will feature open-air balconies overlooking the landscaping and surrounding area, while the facade itself will be painted a light color along the pedestrian-facing east wall and darker along the west wall facing I-880.
The project will create a new public plaza along 20th Street as a privately owned public open space. Future amenities will include a roof deck, a green roof, and landscaped entry plazas. The project is supposed to complement the neighborhood’s goal of creating an active, pedestrian-oriented urban community in West Oakland.
The estimated cost and timeline for construction have not yet been established.
