This is a project we were working on recently and I thought I would share it with you all. It’s a condominium/mixed use in Oakland. It’s a great opportunity since the neighborhood has slowly been improving over the past few years as the economy has come back. The retail front is an option for the project that has a high likelyhood of good performance since there’s a freeway entrance just down the street, and some decent street parking. The materials, finishes, massing, window shading and solar panels above are all BuiltItGreen and LEED compliant. Don’t hold me to the color palette, this is only one of several.
This neighborhood is zoned as so many things is hilarious, live work, light industrial, and about four overlay districts. Here’s the before shot to show the difference.
