Trammell Crow Residential to Redevelop Downtown Oakland Parking Lot into Mixed-Use Complex


Trammell Crow Residential (TCR) has broken ground on a redevelopment in Oakland that will transform a parking lot between Webster St and Valdez St at 23rd St into a vibrant mixed-use destination that includes luxury apartment homes, retail, parking, jobs and art. The project, the Alexan Webster, enjoys a central location with its close proximity to Lake Merritt and the thriving Uptown Oakland with amenities such as Whole Foods, restaurants and shops. The Cathedral of Oakland, employers and the 19th BART station are also nearby.

Designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, this 1.42-acre project represents a unique public/private partnership between the city and TCR and is a culmination of more than four years of planning. The new $135 mil sustainable development, located at 2330 Webster St, will feature a 234-unit mixed-use luxury apartment community with 15k sf of neighborhood-serving street-front retail. The design also includes a parking garage with 242 public city stalls as well as unbundled parking for the Alexan Webster residents. Completion is slated for summer 2019.

“The Alexan fills a void in the city's urban fabric by creating an active project frontage on both Valdez Street and Webster Street. The project wraps around an existing auto body shop and the former Hawker Fare restaurant at the corner of 23rd and Webster,” said Jessica Musick, associate principal in KTGY’s Oakland office. “The existing structures create an opportunity for unique architectural language along each street frontage."

The design includes approximately 5k sf of indoor amenity and leasing space, as well as a lap pool, which is rather unique for an apartment community, and a cool rooftop deck that capitalizes on the dramatic views of Lake Merritt, the Oakland hills and downtown Oakland. Additionally, the Alexan Webster will feature an art installation on the rooftop deck adjacent to the amenity area.

The new apartment community will feature a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom apartment homes ranging in size from 600 sf to 1.2k sf. The well-appointed, energy-efficient apartment homes will come with a full-size washer and dryer, gourmet-style kitchen with a waterfall countertop and gas range, plus large picture windows and high-end designer fixtures and finishes. In addition to the lap pool, the community amenities will also include a community center, concierge, rooftop lounge, business center, 24-hour fitness center, outdoor kitchen, bicycle repair center and storage, and a pet spa. The apartment homes on the penthouse level enjoy higher ceilings throughout the units and other upscale finishes.

The Alexan Webster will feature inclusionary housing to help ease the high demand for affordable housing. As part of the agreement with the City of Oakland, Alexan Webster will designate 15% of its units as affordable to households earning between 50%, 80%, and 120% of the area’s median income.
