The UC Board of Regents has dedicated $7 million to kick-start the pre-development of a new student housing complex at 2200 Bancroft Way in Southside, Berkeley. The project will replace a two-story structure and surface parking with a 1,400-bed dormitory to satisfy the city’s insatiable demand for housing UC Berkeley students.
Preliminary plans have been shared for a six-story residential infill at 4225 Broadway in Oakland’s Temescal neighborhood. The new proposal is an increase in height and housing from previous plans for a five-story apartment complex by the same developer. CGI+ is listed as the property owner.
New renderings have been revealed for the ‘Yes In God’s Back Yard’ proposal at 1010 91st Avenue in East Oakland, Alameda County. The project will replace a portion of surface parking for the conjoined church with a four-story apartment complex. Lily of the Valley Christian Center is listed as the property owner.
The Berkeley Design Review Committee is scheduled to review plans for the eight-story residential infill at 2480 Bancroft Way in Southside, Berkeley. The project, named ‘The Edge,’ will create 28 large apartments directly across from the UC Berkeley campus, designed to meet the city’s high demand for student living. Ruegg & Ellsworth is responsible for the project as the building owner.
The draft study has been published for the five-story residential infill at 1652 University Avenue in Central Berkeley, Alameda County. The urban project will replace a single-story commercial structure along the major thoroughfare with 26 homes and two live-work spaces. Berkeley-based Studio KDA is responsible for the design.
