Parkside is a new 311,000 sq ft development located at the prominent intersection of Powell and Hollis Streets in Emeryville. The 166 units will consist of studios, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom plus 14 live/work/flex spaces over ground-floor retail. The new development, consisting of two buildings, will also feature a pool, fitness center, two courtyard gardens, community room, and a business center. It will front a new proposed public park.

In keeping with the industrial neighborhood, the fa├žade utilizes a material palette of stucco, metal siding, brick, and wood. Portions of an existing industrial brick building have been incorporated into the design. Bays and balconies are inset into the elevations to provide visual rhythm.

Residents will have access to a number of amenities, including expansive views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, private courtyards, a resort-style pool with spa, business center and a 24-hour fitness center with pool views and free weights. The Parkside complex will feature 9-foot ceilings in flats and 15-foot ceilings in select live-work units, plus modern European-style cabinets and granite countertops.
