Having been waylaid by the BART strike, the ground breaking for Phase Two of MacArthur Station, the master-planned Transit-Oriented Development on BART’s former MacArthur Station parking lot in North Oakland, has been rescheduled for Friday, November 15 at 11am.
Once again, Phase Two of the development will consist of 90 apartments at 40th and Telegraph for households with incomes ranging from 30 to 50 percent of the area’s median income.
In total, MacArthur Station will eventually provide a total of 624 new housing units on the 7.76 acre site, of which 516 units will be market rate. In addition, 42,500 square feet of local commercial and retail space will be constructed along with 5,000 square feet of space for community use.
Phase One of the MacArthur Station development was the new 478-space parking garage for BART.
The remaining A, B and C parcels are slated for development over the next eight years.
