3250 HOLLIS STREET, OAKLAND
This site encompasses roughly an entire block in West Oakland with 214,500 sf of building area.  This multilevel design bifurcates the site with a private mews, creating a neighborhood tree lined open space and some interior guest parking.  The entry of the mews is marked by a standalone, tall one story commercial structure, for future neighborhood serving retail, which is just part of the 2,100 sf of retail space in this project.  The design also rehabilitates the corner two story structure that was emblematic of the corner commercial buildings with residential units above.  Each of the structures also has community room and open space on the podium level with access to the mews below. The 29 work/live units surround the perimeter with direct street access to create an inviting Street edge.
