Working with multiple transit agencies, Sandis provided surveying and engineering services for the creation of a $330 million, 7.76 acre transit-oriented mixed-use development which functions as an integrated multimodal link for the community. Street/signal improvements and traffic-calming measures were also provided along the Telegraph Avenue and Macarthur Boulevard corridors. The project involved off-site signalization improvements at eight intersections . The project increases comfort and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians using Oakland’s MacArthur BART Station.
The project mitigates interactions between cars, buses, pedestrians, and bicycles within a small area. Plans needed to acccomadate multiple transit agencies as this multimodal tranporation hub was being integrated with a new mixed-use development. The five-phased development also includes 625 multi-family residential units, 42,500 s.f. of retail space, and a 5,000 s.f. community/child care space. The project interconnected private and public roadways and new BART parking structure with 480 spaces with a mix of Surveying services included the preparation of a boundary and topographic survey, ALTA survey, and plats & legal descriptions as required.
The project had five phases. Engineering services for the planning development phase consisted of significant entitlement phase services including: existing conditions plan; preliminary development plan; preliminary grading plan and earthwork estimates (on and off-site improvements); preliminary utility plan; research available information of exiting public utility capacities; EIR Support (calculations and civil narrative for utility demands and coordination); and issuance of Preliminary Development Package. Sandis provided schematic design of grading and drainage and utility plan; outline specifications; tentative map; and a subdivision map. LEED Platinum certification.
