The scope of work includes the construction of single-family housing on eight mini-lots. The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 0.21 acres. The project brings a minor density increase from neighboring residences. The proposal utilizes the State Density Bonus Law by providing one moderate-income unit. The project also includes waivers under the law for front and street side setbacks and open space.

  1. These look like townhouses, not single family, and the parking would be in the back, not the front.

  2. I have nothing against modernism, but the original design seems to fit in better with the existing buildings. scale, pitched roofline, less boxy than the new design.

  3. Clean lovely project. Yay for more housing in the town!

  4. The neighborhood is in the Glenview Neighborhood, not Tresle Glen. Please correct that. Thank you.

    Also, the plan that shows a boxy design does not fit the Glenview style. It looks too much like an office building. The original design looks better as housing there. A flat roof is also more likely to leak from rain pooling over the years. A slanted roof is better.

  5. Looks good. Glad to have more housing in Glenview. We checked out the two similar developments in Oakmore and they seem to fit nicely in the neighborhood.

  6. I agree with everything Kit said.. In fact everything said so far…

  7. That neighborhood is Glenview.

  8. That is some uninspired design!

    Renderings show trees that approximate 20 feet in height on Hampel and Park Blvd. Trees and landscape are critical to soften the impact of the boxy design and close distance to the property lines. It is not clear if the trees are on the subject property or parking strip. How will the project provide assurance that the landscape will be in place and maintained given individual ownership?

  10. The neighborhood’s email list was overwhelming critical of the design. It simply isn’t inappropriate for Glenview’s early-20th century architecture and small-town space. But since the state legislature took zoning away from us, there’s nothing we can do to protect our homes and investments. We’ll be another of Oakland’s so-so neighborhoods, joining those sacrificed after WWII, instead of one of its loveliest. There are better ways to create housing, more appropriate places, but YIMBYs prefer this.
