A new rendering has been published ahead of tomorrow’s meeting with Oakland’s Design Review Committee for Brooklyn Basin, a waterfront master-planned development. The request would expand the development’s residential capacity to hold 3,700 apartments, with over a hundred more boat slips. Oakland-based Signature Development Group is developing the project, with joint financing from Signature, Zarsion Holdings Group, and Reynolds & Brown.
Signature first proposed the residential expansion at Brooklyn Basin in September of 2021, with the prospect of an additional 24-story tower hinted at. New planning documents show that the new tower will rise in Parcel M, giving the parcel a second high-rise component.
The 600 new units would be included in the later construction phases within parcels K, L, and M. Parcel K is proposed to increase capacity from 231 to 400 units, Parcel L from 146 to 240 units, and Parcel M from 240 to 577 units.
The marina capacity will also be nearly doubled to 298 slips, reduced from earlier plans to have 327 slips, with improvements to accommodate a water taxi or shuttle service. Improvements have been made to preserve views of Alameda and the San Francisco skyline.
Full build-out is expected by 2027. If the proposed revision for Brooklyn Basin is approved, the project will include 3,700 apartments and the pre-approved 30 acres of landscaping, 200,000 square feet of retail including a new grocery store, and the already-open 9th Avenue Terminal and award-winning park designed by Einwiller Kuehl.
Oakland’s Design Review Committee is scheduled to review the increased plans tomorrow, March 23rd, at 3 PM. For information about the meeting and how to attend, see the meeting agenda here. During the meeting, plans will also be reviewed for 525 12th Street. Read more about that in our other story published today.
