Pedestrian access will primarily be through mews which connect the main lobby of both buildings. The north building will also be accessible from San Pablo Avenue and Knott Avenue. Some ground-floor apartments in the north building will also have direct street access on Knott Avenue and Kearney Street. Additional access to the south building will be through three secure points from the parking garage and a ground-floor access door on Cutting Boulevard at the southern corner of the parking garage.
Vehicle parking for residents, commercial/retail owners, and employees will be located in an enclosed two-level parking garage under the south building; behind the San Pablo Avenue commercial uses. Vehicles will enter the site from Kearny Street. A total of 348 long-term bicycle parking spaces secured inside each building for residents and 46 commercial bicycle parking spaces are proposed to be located in front of retail frontages on San Pablo Avenue.
This project is a Tier IV Design Review Project under the San Pablo Avenue Specific Plan.
