98th/San Leandro site is located in a historically industrial zone in East Oakland, with storage and manufacturing uses fronting the site on three sides. The new residential development will become home to a diverse mix of residents and help to improve the safety of the neighborhood by providing “eyes on the streets”. Its location near multiple nodes of transit and the on-site work/live units will minimize the development’s impacts on traffic congestion and pollution.
In harnessing the street character, open space and pedestrian experience within the neighborhood the design aims to create an active, pedestrian-oriented community that provides a mix of high-quality work/live, residential units and commercial space, in the urban neighborhood of East Oakland.
