The City of Oakland has published updated environmental documents for a seven-story mixed-use development at 3050 International Boulevard in Fruitvale, Oakland. The project will reshape a 0.75-acre vacant lot with 76 units of affordable housing and dedicated space for the Native American Health Center. Satellite Affordable Housing Associates is responsible for the application.
The 75-foot tall structure will yield around 110,720 square feet, with 82,940 square feet for residences, 13,780 square feet for commercial use, and 13,990 square feet for parking. Residents will also find 9,870 square feet of open space across the property. Parking will be included for 20 cars and 29 bicycles. Unit sizes will vary with 28 one-bedrooms, 29 two-bedrooms, and 19 three-bedrooms.
NAHC is a national non-profit dedicated to providing healthcare for indigenous peoples across the country. The Oakland center will focus on youth and adolescent care. There will be a behavioral health and dental clinic, on-site Women, Infants and Children Services (WIC), a community and cultural center, and administrative offices.
The project will create 76 units, of which one will be for an on-site manager, and 75 will be marketed as affordable for households earning between 20-60% of the Area Median Income. Amenities will include a community room with a kitchen, outdoor spaces, on-site management, and laundry. SAHA writes that various community events can be scheduled for the residents, such as lessons on gardening, farm-to-table cooking, and children’s activities.
PYATOK Architects is responsible for the design, with SmithGroup leading the health clinic interiors. Facade materials will include plaster, board-formed concrete, vertical metal panels, and terracotta or stone tile siding.
Cliff Lowe Associates is the landscape architect. The second floor will divide the upper levels between two sides, with units overlooking a landscaped courtyard. According to the landscape narrative, the space is designed to “take on a number of different uses depending upon the program dictated by management.”
The narrative goes on to say, “the movement and forms are an abstraction of the native indigenous sites, often found near river or stream banks of the Bay Area. Shellmounds, tilted landforms, and other features reflect this abstraction.”
Luk & Associates are consulting on civil engineering. The general contractor has not yet been announced. Construction is expected to cost around $91 million. An estimated timeline for construction and completion has not yet been established.
