The Emeryville Planning Commission is scheduled to review new plans today for parcels A and B of the Emeryville Public Market Project in Alameda County. The proposal requests significant amendments to the Marketplace Preliminary Development Plan, building more than double the initially imagined office area, removing 167 units of housing, and creating a six-story garage. Canadian firm Oxford Properties is responsible for the application, collaborating with City Center Realty Partners.

Filed in 2018, plans by Onni Group and IBI Group proposed a 638-foot tall apartment tower and a 16-story office building that would launch Emeryville, a dense city between Berkeley and Oakland, into the Bay Area’s skyline. Eventually, plans for the tower were withdrawn in 2020. Now, a new developer expects to build at 5801-5861 Christie Avenue, but with a significantly reduced profile.
A study session to review a proposed Final Development Plan (FDP) of the Marketplace Redevelopment in Emeryville is scheduled today. The project proposal includes the development of a mixed-use transit hub with residential and retail space. Plans also call for the construction of two buildings offering space for Research and Development. Heller Manus Architects is responsible for the design concepts and construction.
