The project sponsor, R&L Carriers, proposes to construct a 61 dock truck freight transfer terminal to be built on a vacant 8.5-acre parcel at the northern terminus of Pardee Drive in Oakland. The terminal would receive regional packages from large-scale trucks and sort them to other large- and small-scale trucks for local deliveries.
The terminal's structures will include a distribution and office building, a maintenance building, a storage and fueling station, and a guardhouse. The distribution and office building would extend up to 23 ft, 4 inches in height, with a cupola extending an additional 6 ft 8 inches, for a total building height of 30 ft. This building would include a 39,000 sf dock facility with up to 61 truck loading doors, and a 5,000 sf office area. The office would include a dispatch center, conference room, driver's waiting room, a sales office, and restrooms. The terminal will also include a 9,000 sf maintenance building, a 216 sf storage area/fueling station, and a 100 sf guardhouse. A total off 119 parking spaces are proposed for the site, including 71 automobile parking spaces, 25 parking spaces for 54 ft trailer trucks, and 23 parking spaces for 30 ft trailer trucks.
