Development permits have been issued for the supportive housing portion of 821 Pine Street in West Oakland. Holliday Development is responsible for the project. Lowney Architecture is responsible for the designs, with David Baker Architects leading the master development plan. Miller Company is responsible for landscape architecture.
Named the Phoenix Supportive Housing, the project will create 101 affordable units. The project is expected to find company with the 205 market-rate units in three apartment buildings,and a potential maker space on the eastern edge of the property. The five buildings will rise one, four, and five stories. Parking for 181 vehicles is also proposed.
The master plan spreading 253,400 square feet includes 19,400 square feet for a light industrial maker space. An administrative building will also provide community and commercial spaces. The residential building will be a factory-built wood framed L shapes structure with four stories on one leg and three stories on the other.
As previously reported, from the master plan, the City of Oakland Planning Commission had reviewed the proposed revisions for the affordable housing component. The residential units will be available as low-market-rate units for residents earning 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI). In previous plans, 50 units would be 80% AMI residents, and the other 50 for 50% AMI residents.
The project is a twelve-minute walk from the West Oakland BART Station along the retail-dotted 7th Street thoroughfare.
