Oakland: 4th & Madison - First Look at New Major Jack London Square Project

When I first heard about the proposed development at 4th & Madison a few months ago, I was excited that we might finally see some additional housing in the popular and beautiful Jack London Square District. Though the environmental report for the project is still being worked on, developer Carmel Partners has already submitted preliminary designs to the city which means we all get so see some renderings for this project.

The development consists of two separate 7-story buildings that would rise on the corner of 4th and Madison. Building A would take up an entire block between 4th, 5th, Madison and Jackson Streets. Across the street, Building B would only take up half a block, fronting 4th, Madison and 3rd Streets. The entire development calls for 330 housing units, 3,000 square feet of retail and 365 parking spaces. Carmel Partners, a major housing developer based in San Francisco, is developing the project with design work being handled by KTGY. Though these are only preliminary renderings, I think designs for the buildings look great so far and will be a vast improvement over what is currently there. The project would rise near several completed housing developments and would really help give the area a more cohesive urban feel. Not to mention the fact that 4th Street doesn't even have a continuous sidewalk so this project would certainly help create a more pedestrian-friendly environment.
