Development permits have been filed seeking the approval of a residential project proposed at 3801 Telegraph Avenue in Mosswood, Oakland. The project proposal includes the development of a seven-story apartment building offering residential and retail spaces. An existing one-story commercial building will be demolished.
Riaz Capital is the project developer. 820 MacArthur is the property owner. Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects Inc is managing the design concepts and construction.
The property site is a 14,500 square-foot parcel. The project will bring 158 apartment units into a seven-story mixed-use building. The total residential built-up area spans 72,899 square feet. The apartment building will feature retail space on the ground floor measuring an area of 2,281 sqaure feet. The building will feature 152 efficiency units and 6 two-bedroom units. Out of the total, the building will have 47 affordable units.
From the last project update, plans appear to be increased; the project has nearly doubled in residential capacity. Project applications have been filed and await a design review. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
The property site is located at the corner of Telegraph Avenue and West MacArthur Boulevard. The development will be near the MacArthur BART station.

Sounds like typical bait and switch tactics. Developers get their noses under the tent with a reasonable proposal and then double it in size after people jump on board, and dangle a few “affordable units” to the Commission to juice it’s passage.
Are you aware of what “YIMBY” stands for? I’m certainly not for unregulated development but this is right next to a MacArthur Bart station and I-80. It is also right next to Boston Properties 25 story residential tower. We need housing and we need more of it next to transportation nodes. The exact spirit of this web site as I understand. I think this is a wonderful development that could be better if it was significantly bigger.
