325 7th Street Site

The plans for a pair of residential towers to rise up to 20 and 27 stories in height at 325 Seventh Street, on an S-shaped site extending from the corner of 7th and Harrison to 6th Street on the edge of Oakland’s Chinatown, were approved at the end of 2011.

And as approved, the project included 380 condos over 9,100 square feet of ground floor office and retail space and a four-story garage for 399 cars.

But the development team is about to return to city with a revised set of plans which will increase the project’s amount of retail and commercial space to 9,800 square feet but dramatically decrease the project’s height and number of new housing units to a total of 160.

We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
