Today we had a drone fly over a project on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland, CA. This is the first installment of a bi-monthly aerial photo update showing the progress of this project. Located in one of Oakland’s most successful commercial districts, the Piedmont Ave. project provides a hybrid development consisting 3 of small commercial/apartment buildings facing the street and 4 townhomes in the rear of the site, all of which sit on fee simple lots subdivided by Oakland’s innovative mini lot process. The architectural expression presents a modern interpretation of the commercial streetscape, but with a horizontal interplay of bay window and balcony projections, which engages the adjacent neighborhood context.
The third photo is an action shot of the drone. We will be adding a video of the drone tomorrow so stay tuned!.
