500 Grand Avenue

Oakland, CA

The proposed project is located on a roughly trapezoidal parcel of land, approximately 0.331 acre in size. The project site slopes gently towards Lake Merritt. The building is six stories high, with a courtyard at the podium level, along Grand and Euclid Avenues and steps down a story along Burk Street while the sidewalk slopes up, resulting in just four stories at the northeast corner and creating a smoother height transition towards some of the lower buildings nearby.

The structural system is a post-tensioned concrete podium slab with concrete shear walls supported by spread footings.
