MacArthur BART Transit Hub Project Description

The MacArthur BART station area is located at the geographic center of the Bay Area and occupies a central location in northern Alameda County within the City of Oakland. The station area is ideally located in relation to existing regional freeways and transit, and is strategically located within short distance to downtown Oakland, the Rockridge and Piedmont commercial districts, and to the East Bay Bridge and the Bay Street shopping developments in Emeryville.

The City of Oakland Redevelopment Agency (Agency) and the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) plan to release a Request for Proposals in early September 2003, seeking a development team to work with BART, the Agency, and the surrounding community to plan, design, construct, and operate a mixed-use project with a residential focus at the MacArthur BART Station in Oakland, California.

The vision for this speculative project is the creation of a transit hub which functions both as a focal point and an integrated link with the rest of the bay area. Ideally, the development would be located within the area defined by: MacArthur Boulevard, Telegraph Avenue, 40th Street, and Highway 24. This larger area, including the BART property, is approximately 10 acres.
