A new mixed-use project has been approved for development at 419 4th Street in Jack London Square, Oakland. The project proposal includes the development of an eight-story mixed-use building offering residential and retail spaces. The site formerly housed the H&L Noodle Factory, and the new building will maintain the original first floor facade.
Smart Growth is the project owner. Lowney Architecture is the project architect.
The project will bring an eight-story building offering 101 residential units spanning an area of 49,365 square feet. The building will yield 1,570 square feet for retail, 1,640 square feet of amenities, and 9,425 square feet for the 41-car garage. Parking will also be included for 52 bicycles. The building will rise to a height of 78 feet and will yield a total built-up area of 78,700 square feet.
The residences will be designed as a mix of studios, one-bedroom units, two-bedroom units, three-bedroom units, and four-bedroom units. Renderings reveal a three-window-wide beam and column grid. The warehouse-like design responds to the existing building that was constructed in 1922.
Design review for adding seven stories and 101 dwelling units above an existing ground floor nonresidential building is proposed. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
