Uptown Oakland

Location: Oakland

Project Type:

PGAdesign designed park, housing, and streetscape improvements that were part of an overall master plan to revive the Uptown area as an entertainment district.  Refining the earlier plan, PGAdesign developed courtyards and verdant corridors for new residential and retail space. Some courtyards serve as gathering places that provide tables, fire pits and other amenities. These areas include the soothing sound of water features, while a monumental sculpture is the focus of Fox Square Park.

Developed by a private-public partnership, the 655 market-rate residential units are transit-oriented, providing less than one parking spot per unit with the expectation that residents will rely on nearby bus and BART lines.

Awards
