Permits have been filed for a new home to be built at 4073 Whittle Avenue in Oakmore, Oakland. The site is in an area that is underserved by transit, so residents in the area almost universally drive rather than make the long trek to the nearest transit station. Oakmore is a primarily single-family neighborhood with winding and hilly streets.
Renderings have been released for a proposed seven-story affordable housing development at 1921 West San Carlos Street, Burbank, San Jose. PATH Ventures are responsible for the development, with concept drawings by Dahlin. The development still needs city approval to move forward.
For today, we have something new. We work to share with you all of the most exciting and consequential development updates across the Bay Area during the week. However, there are many permits and other stories that fall through the cracks. They tend not to be significant enough or do not come with enough details to merit a full article. We, of course, do not take your attention for granted. However, in sum, all these permits add up to a significant contribution to the built environment of the Bay Area, and we would hate to miss them. So from now on, our Saturday special will be the biggest of the little permits for the week. Today’s post will share with you the best of Friday, September 25th. Fridays are notoriously slow days for permit filings. Yet, we still found some large plans filed in Sacramento, a cannabis warehouse expansion, and eight applications for additional dwelling units, i.e., ADU, across the Bay.
Permits have been filed to demolish an existing structure and construction of a new home at 3775 La Donna Way in Barron Park, Palo Alto. The city is mostly single-family housing with large yards and famous anti-density representation. Transit access in the immediate area is limited, although a commute into San Francisco is available via Caltrain through a park and ride station.
A 19-story mixed-use proposal for 1510 Webster Street is heading to Oakland’s Design Review Committee next Wednesday. If approved, the project will add 182 units to a lot currently occupied by a low-slung commercial structure and surface parking in Downtown Oakland. The project is being designed and developed by oWOW through 1510 Webster LLC.
