Applications have been submitted seeking the development of a transit-oriented project in Oakland. The project proposal includes the development of three four-story residential complexes and a five-story parking garage.
The Unity Council is the project sponsor and Signature Properties is the developer. BART owns the project site.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 3.4 acres. Named The Fruitvale Village, the project proposes to bring 275 residential units into three four-story complexes, along with 277 parking spaces into a five-story parking garage. The parking structure will span over an area of 111,100 square feet and the three residential buildings will range from 101,000 to 115,000 square feet in area.
The existing BART parking lot and associated landscaping will be removed from the project site. The proposed project will be constructed in four phases. The parking structure will be constructed during Phase 1, and three four‐story residential buildings will be constructed during Phases 2 through 4.
The project is moving into phase two. The project site is located adjacent to the Fruitvale BART station, bound by 35th and 37th Avenues, East 12th Street, and BART tracks.
