Bayside Park consists a total of 126 residential units, 66 of which are assisted-living and 60 of which are independent living. Retail space at street level promotes interaction with the neighborhood and reduces the sense of isolation for residents. The project includes a dining facility, café, salon, art center, fitness center, nurse stations, therapy rooms, and activity rooms. It also has a specially designed rooftop garden, where residents can pursue gardening. The 120,000 square foot, 5-story building sits at a busy intersection in Emeryville. Our design takes advantage of this by creating a large, street-level lobby with a projecting awning, which – along with the retail space – will connect residents to the active neighborhood.
