A pre-application has been filed for an eight-story mixed-use infill at 8055 Collins Drive by the Coliseum in Oakland, Alameda County. The plans fit in the southern edge of the Coliseum Area Specific Plan, which would convert the sprawling area around the soon-to-close home to the Oakland Athletics into an urban district. Construction Resource Center led by Len Turner is listed as responsible for the application as the property owner.
The 117-foot tall structure will yield around 72,000 square feet with parking for 34 cars within the ground-floor garage and outdoor parking. Outside the building, landscaping will include trees and open space by a basketball half-court. The top four floors will include 40 apartments, split between one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.
The ground floor will include a manufacturing warehouse area, a retail space for a restaurant or retail, and office space. The second floor will be dedicated to a 16-room short-term residential therapy program with dining space and amenities. The third floor includes an event space, wellness center, barber station, and audio recording studio.
SM2Design is responsible for the design. Renderings show the distinction between the community-oriented podium and the residential units above. Floor-to-ceiling windows will sit between horizontal-siding panels for three floors. An imaginative cobblestone area illustrates where the on-site parking lot will be, lined with turf grass and a full-height wall guarding residents from the streetscape.
The 0.61-acre property is located by the intersection of Hegenberger Road and Joe Morgan Way. The Coliseum BART Station is about 16 minutes away on foot. Construction Resource Center is sponsoring the application.
