Development permits have been filed seeking the approval of a mixed-use project at 1232 High Street in Oakland. The project proposal includes the construction of a five-story mixed-use building offering space for storage. The site currently contains a small market in a brick building, two homes, and a small auto repair shop.

Elwood Commercial Real Estate is the project applicant. Kava Massih Architects is responsible for the designs.

The project proposes to merge four parcels together, spanning an area of 32,000 square feet. The project will bring a new five-story mixed-use self-storage building, StorQuest Self Storgage. The building will span an area of 128,892 square feet. The building will include space for parking, a loading dock, office, lobby, and a community room on the ground floor.

Renderings reveal a contemporary-styled light industrial building. The siding would be corrugated metal panels with a pattern of deeply recessed and projecting vertical windows that create a successful composition on each façade. A bank of windows spanning from the ground to above the roof define the entrance on East 12th Street. Two tower features define the northern corners of the building at High Street and 44th Avenue, respectively, and will bring visual interest to the façade facing International Boulevard.

Landscaping elements will be installed on all frontages and at the interior lot line facing International Boulevard. The landscape areas will consist of street trees and on-site planter strips adjacent to the building walls.

A design review has been proposed and is pending approval. The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet. The project site fronts East 12th Street to the south, 44th Avenue to the east, and High Street to the west.

  2. It is a bold statement and undoubtedly stand-out. My first thought was where are the windows, but then I read it is self-storage. Self-storage is needed since we have a tendency to hoard things that we will never use, but we keep it “just in case”, or we can’t bear to part with it. Save a couple hundred a month and get rid of it and clean out your garage.
