A preliminary application has been filed for 7994 MacArthur Boulevard in Oakland. The project proposal includes the development of a new five-story affordable housing project. Plans call for the demolition of a two-story residence and a mini-mart on the site.
Architect for BETA, Inc is responsible for the design concepts.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 10,000 square feet. The project will bring a five-story residential building offering 40 units at 100 percent extremely-low income (less than 30 percent of the area’s median income). The new construction will yield a total residential built-up area of 34,500 square feet. The building will have a two-bedroom manager’s unit, case management offices, an exercise room, reception, lounge, and offices.
The building will rise to a height of 77 feet. Parking for 15 vehicles and 16 bikes will be developed on the site.
Renderings have not been revealed yet. The project application has been submitted and is awaiting review. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
