SUSTAINABLE DENSIFICATION OF URBAN CORES

SUSTAINABLE DENSIFICATION OF URBAN CORES

a sustainable solution

There are three core problems with suburban development. First, most of it is green-field development, an unsustainable process that strips land from agriculture. Second, the average American’s commute to work is 25.5 minutes each way, according to a USA report. This translates roughly into 5 hours a week and is associated with higher blood sugar and cholesterol, a heightened risk of depression, anxiety, and a decrease of happiness and overall life satisfaction.

Finally, economic movement and location are directly proportional—your chances of climbing the income ladder decrease the further you are from an urban center.

This 191-unit mixed-use tower is designed by RAD/SDG as a series of thin vertical towers that are grouped together and capped by an iconic light feature. On the west side, the tower steps down to the street through a series of landscaped townhouse roofs. At the ground floor, neighborhood retail spaces open onto the projects three primary streets.

The project is conveniently located in Uptown Oakland, two blocks away from 19th St. BART Station, 5-minute walk to Lake Merritt and across the street from Pandora’s HQ and Gensler’s Oakland Office. Residents will be able to enjoy the vibrant night scene along Broadway street and acclaimed restaurants like Ozumo, Duende and Kingston 11 Cuisine.

This 179-unit mixed-use tower stands prominently on the corner adjacent to Oakland’s historic YWCA building. The building is designed by RAD/SDG to reference this important landmark by lifting up the modern glass tower on Webster street and inserting a contextual base.

Located in the heart of Downtown Oakland, the project is two blocks away from 12th St. BART Station and Oakland Civic Center. Residents will be able to enjoy this up and coming neighborhood which houses boutique coffee shops, bars, art galleries and multi-ethnic food.
