The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 0.47 acres. The project plans include the redevelopment of the site with a five-story building featuring 68 100% affordable units. The building will also offer amenities and community spaces on the ground floor. The intergenerational affordable housing apartment will provide homes for seniors, youth transitioning out of foster care (TAY) and the formerly unhoused.

The units will be offered as a mix of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, ranging in size from approximately 440 square feet to 850 square feet. Monthly rents are expected to range from approximately $690 to $1,770, which is 30-60% of current Area Median Income (AMI), but are subject to household income level and other factors.

Renderings reveal flexible design options, such as using mass timber, which will reduce the development’s carbon footprint and lessen disruption to neighbors by creating a quieter, cleaner job site. Residential units, located on floors two through five, are designed to be constructed efficiently using traditional stick-framing or modular units manufactured off-site. Construction flexibility minimizes the development’s environmental impact while expediting the construction timeline.

4300 San Pablo will include numerous sustainability features, such as job site waste diversion during the construction process, as well as stormwater control, resource-efficient landscaping and a rooftop garden. Designed for LEED Silver certification, the development will also incorporate eco-friendly construction materials, including double-glazed windows, as well as low VOC paints, energy-efficient lighting, water-saving plumbing fixtures and electric vehicle charging stations. In addition, a bike kitchen and storage racks will encourage the use of alternative transportation methods, linking 4300 San Pablo to the broader bicycle and pedestrian network.

City Planning Commission of Emeryville will has scheduled a review meeting on March 24, 2022, details of which can be found here.
