Oakland Housing Replacement Studies

Replacement Housing Studies, Oakland Housing Authority

The Housing Authority had several sites that had shown extensive deterioration and were faced with difficult maintenance issues. It was determined that replacement might be an option, as opposed to comprehensive modernization. Gutierrez/Associates produced designs at sites on 77th Avenue, 9th Avenue, and East 17th Street that maximized their sites, including market rate amenities that projected quality images of dignity and modernity. Full schematic designs were completed, and included comprehensive development costs estimates and preliminary specifications. The projects are awaiting funding.
