Oakland-based developer and architecture firm oWOW has proposed building 73 new homes at 3403 Piedmont Avenue, less than ten minutes away from Downtown Oakland by AC Transit. Now, the Sawmill Residences have passed an important hurdle in the approval process. The environmental review by Lamphier-Gregory for the California Environmental Quality Act, or CEQA, concluded that the project will not have a significant impact on the area.
New renderings have been published for the residential development at 3403 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland. Located by the retail-rich Broadway thoroughfare and Pill Hill neighborhood, the project will replace surface parking and a single-story office building with 73 new homes and ground-floor retail. oWOW is the owner, developer, and project architect.
Oakland-based oWow Design filed for development permits seeking the approval of constructing a new eight-story residential building at 3403 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland. The project proposes the demolition of a small office building and the construction of 76 units. Named Sawmill Residences, the project will offer onsite affordable units and Density Bonus provisions. oWow Design LLC is managing the design concepts and construction. 3400 Broadway LLC is listed as the property owner and developer.
