Emeryville might soon seen another major active construction project as an Amtrak-adjacent train station parking lot is about to disappear. The project, known as EmeryStation West @ Transit Center, will include a total of 220,000 square feet of lab and office space as well as 2,400 square feet of ground floor retail space in a 9-story structure on the corner of Horton and 59th Streets. The building will also include bus bays as well as various improvements and amenities for transit users. A separate site at Horton and 62nd is also part of this development and will house a 7-story parking garage with a ground floor retail space that will provide additional parking for the main building.

Wareham Development has secured approvals from the city of Emeryville but is still working on finalizing building permits which should be ready in the coming months. In the meantime, work should begin very soon on remediating the site's contaminated soil. When I passed by the lot just a little over a week ago, the surface parking lot was already closed to the public. However, I could not see any active signs of construction or remediation work at that time.

While I always struggle a bit with the amount of parking that Emeryville projects are required (and sometimes choose) to provide, I'm glad to see two more surface parking lots disappear. And I'm especially excited for the many improvements this development will bring to Amtrak and bus riders.
