This new mixed-use development has transformed an underutilized block near Berkeley’s historic train depot. New four and five story structures frame a public plaza and contain a mix of restaurants, retail shops, and apartments. In order to harmonize with the eclectic surrounding industrial/residential neighborhood, a variety of forms, heights, colors and materials break the scale of the development down into five unique building typologies. A new private street and a network of pedestrian pathways weave through the block, integrating the project into the existing city fabric.
The project is “Build It Green” certified.
