Goals for the North Berkeley BART station

Maximize homes for all!

  • Build more than the BART TOD minimum of 75 units/acre. Having 1,000 homes* should be on the table
  • Well-designed density will enhance the neighborhood
  • Density enables vibrant street life and increased bus frequency

Ensure equitable development

  • Maximize the number of affordable units to very low income and low income people
  • Variety of sizes in apartment homes, studios and family-sized units
  • Parking structures are expensive; let’s make all the homes less costly by having less parking

Create safe routes for kids, people with disabilities, pedestrians, and cyclists

  • Reduce local car traffic by not replacing all parking spaces
  • Improve connections for commuters arriving on foot, transit, or by bike
  • Drivers with disabled placards should have parking priority (with some spaces for carpools and electric vehicles as well)

Foster meaningful public space

  • Make a central space that both commuters and locals can use and enjoy
  • Complete the Ohlone Greenway from the corner of Virginia & Acton to Ohlone Park
  • Variety of sizes in retail spaces, so mom & pop stores can afford to rent, as well as chains

*- When we refer to "homes" we mean individual units in apartment buildings or townhouses, not single family homes.
