A plan has been proposed to increase the height of a residential development at Rockridge Geotechnical’s 1401 Folsom Street site in San Francisco. The complex would increase from seven to ten stories, which would increase the number of apartments to 94 while keeping the 1,450 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
New plans have been filed for a mixed-use residential development at Rockridge Geotechnical’s 3030 Telegraph Avenue site in Berkeley. The six-story complex will have 174 new units of housing, 20 of which will be affordable, and over 1,900 square feet of retail space.
A six-story, 100% affordable housing project for the Berkeley Adult School has been proposed at 1701 San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, one of Rockridge Geotechnical’s sites. The 110 affordable units will be prioritized for employees of the Berkeley Unified School District and their families. Amenities include on-site parking, resident center with kitchen, and outdoor courtyard.
New permits have been submitted for a 351-unit residential complex at Rockridge Geotechnical’s 8373 Bruceville Road site in Sacramento. The development, called Bruceville Apartments, will consist of 11 three-story apartment buildings as well as amenities, such as a clubhouse and pool deck.
Construction is now underway for Rockridge Geotechnical’s Elco Yards complex at 1601 El Camino Real in Redwood City. The 8.3-acre, multi-building project plans to create over 500 units of housing, office space, retail space, a childcare center, and open space with greenery, such as tree-lined streets. This development is deliberately located next to an existing Caltrain station, as well as existing restaurants, shops, and offices, creating a large transit village.
Rockridge Geotechnical has just received word that our project at 1510 Webster Street in Oakland is the tallest Type IV-A mass timber building in a high seismic zone in the world! Thank you to all our partners, especially DCI Engineers, in helping us achieve this incredible feat!
$168 million in loans has been secured for the first phase of the residential project at Rockridge Geotechnical’s Gateway Crossing site in Santa Clara. When this multi-building phase is finished, it will create over 1,500 homes adjacent to Caltrain, along with ~45,000 square feet of retail space, a 225-key hotel, on-site parking, and new parks.
Funding has been secured for the 83-unit, 270-bed mixed-use student housing project at Rockridge Geotechnical’s site at 2538 Durant Avenue in Berkeley. The 85-foot structure will include five very low-income units, along with ~5,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
