A site visit by SF YIMBY shows construction is well underway for the Brooklyn Basin development, one of the largest in the city of Oakland with thousands of units and two planned skyscrapers. One of the residential structures is already accepting move-ins, and two others are nearing completion. Located adjacent to the gentrifying Jack London District, it is a new mixed-use district with 3,100 new units, 200,00 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, a few marinas, and thirty acres of public parks.
Pre-application permits have been filed for a mixed-use structure at 4311 MacArthur Boulevard between Laurel and Redwood Heights, Oakland. This resurrects hope for developing the vacant lot by AMG & Associates. The firm had pursued a smaller project in March 2010, though it withdrew in 2016. New permits describe a 197-unit mixed-use affordable housing development to qualify for Senate Bill 35 (SB35) to expedite approval.
Alteration permits have been filed to refurbish an existing structure to bring forty-five new units at 622 14th Street, Downtown Oakland. The project would bring additional activity to the static site that’s just three and a half blocks from the 12th Street BART Station. Vaughn Management Group is listed as responsible for the development.
Development permits have been filed for a new six-story mixed-use building at 6518 San Pablo Avenue in Paradise Park, Oakland. The neighborhood has been fastly redeveloped. The proposal will create nine residential units and two spots for ground-floor retail. Atomic Development Company is responsible for the project.
The Oakland City Planning Commission has approved the multi-building mixed-use Mandela Station @ West Oakland BART development, which plans to bring 762 units to 1451 7th Street, West Oakland. The project, so named for surrounding West Oakland BART Station, will culminate with over 75,000 square feet of new park space, retail, 240 affordable houses, and 522 market-rate apartments inside the 320-foot residential tower. JRDV Architects is responsible for the design.
