MacArthur Station Transit Village Master Plan

Location: MacArthur BART, Oakland


For this mixed-use transit-oriented development adjacent to the MacArthur BART Station, PGAdesign lead the master planning for five phases of development, including a renovated station entry plaza, a new parking garage, new pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly streets, a new affordable housing community, and three mixed-use market-rate housing developments. The aim is to encourage urban life and engage the community at this key transit hub.

To create a sense of place, plantings of different colors and textures, accent paving, and informal seating make the site inviting and walkable. PGAdesign promoted clear sightlines and well-lit pedestrian pathways as well as strategic signage to improve wayfinding. The master plan proposes a bioswale along building edges to collect and filter stormwater. PGAdesign also completed construction documents for all public and private streetscapes, the transit plaza, and the first housing development.
