Document Description
The Mandela Grand Mixed Use Project is an industrial village development that would redevelop and revitalize approximately 13.3 acres of underutilized industrial and commercial land in Oakland, CA. The project would demolish most of the existing buildings on the site (the American Steel Building and portions of the Pacific Pipe Building Complex) and construct eight new buildings. The project would adaptively reuse the 47,000-square-foot original timber-frame structure of the Pacific Pipe Building. The development would contain predominantly custom and light industrial uses with limited commercial uses on the ground and second floors of each of the buildings (approximately 300,702 square feet). High-density residential uses (1,577 units) would occur on building levels above the industrial and commercial uses. The proposed uses would include a two-story podium base that would accommodate custom/light industrial and commercial uses, and residential uses would be located on residential floors above the podium that range from four to nine stories. Additionally, three high-rise towers of 27 residential floors over the two-story podium (up to 300 feet tall above grade) would be constructed. The project would provide approximately 2,322 parking spaces - approximately 96% of the total in underground garages and three above-ground, three-story parking garages.
