Development permits have been approved for 10500 International Boulevard, a five-story affordable housing project by the southern border of Oakland, Alameda County. The project, named Hestia, will create 210 affordable homes and is the final phase of a three-phase development by AMG & Associates.
10500 International Boulevard will be separated into two separate five-story structures fronting International Boulevard. Building A will yield 79,510 square feet with 111 units. Building B will span 78,580 square feet with 99 units. All rental units will be one-bedrooms, save for a two-bedroom unit in each structure for managers.
The 60-foot development will include parking for 36 cars and 64 bicycles on the 1.08-acre site. Residents will find access to 11,480 square feet of common space split between outdoor family areas, an interior amenity center, and a courtyard.
Southern California-based Architects Orange is responsible for the design. Facade materials will include stucco, brick veneer, fiber cement siding, metal awnings, and perforated metal panels. The stucco will be painted with various grey tones and bright red, contrasting with the wood-look fiber cement siding.
Pleasanton-based Ruggeri-Jensen-Azar is the civil engineer, and Thomas H. Phelps is the landscape architect. Landscaping will be featured throughout the project with various trees along the streetway and fifth-floor terrace on Building A.
Construction work has already finished for phase one, the Oakland Station Senior Housing community.
