This compact urban project proposes to redevelop an existing commercial site and surface parking lot on a 1.81 acre site. The redevelopment plans include 1,500 SF of commercial area, 97 residential units, an outdoor pool, and BBQ terrace.
Located within walking distance to the South Hayward BART station, the design aims to create an attractive streetscape with active uses and abundant glazing on the ground level. Ground floor programming will include a commercial space, garage parking, and an inviting lobby.
A challenge was how to fit enough units and parking on a fairly steeply sloping site while providing adequate fire truck access and designing a modern mixed-use building that follows the requirements of the form based code for this area.
