Lake Merritt BART Station Specific Plan

Location
Oakland, California

Human Impact Partners

The HIA addressed the City of Oakland's station area planning process for land use improvements around the Lake Merritt BART station in downtown Oakland. The plan will likely include housing; new space for office, retail, and light industry; higher residential density; parkland improvement; and increased connectivity between several different nodes of the city. The planning area, in part, includes Oakland's Chinatown and there is community concern about displacement and continuing the cultural environment that currently exists. Pathways and health issues explored include jobs, business, economic development, retail (specifically grocery stores), transportation, public safety, parks and housing.
