Northern California developer Swenson has submitted plans to begin site preparation on a mixed-use development featuring 157 apartment units over storefront retail near Jack London Square at 412 Madison St. in Oakland, CA.
Initial plans for the site, a former recycling center gone vacant, include environmental cleanup and use of reclaimed materials. Swenson plans to develop in harmony with Oakland’s green building standards, and the site will offer a public art installation.
Resident amenities will include a sky terrace, bike storage, and a ride share pick up/drop off within walking distance to BART and the restaurant/retail venues of Oakland’s waterfront district.
“A unique mix of industrial and commercial space, this area has the potential to be so much more. Swenson plans to recycle this vacant building into something more dynamic and reflective of the local urban environment and the community it serves,” according to Swenson SVP Bill Ryan.
