If it has been a while since you last visited Oakland, CA, you are in for a surprise. Over the last few years, Oakland has seen dozens of new construction projects throughout its downtown core and nearby neighborhoods. The Conco Companies have been pleased to be involved in several of them.
One example is the Brooklyn Basin Parcel B Project, which is a 7-story residential housing project from the developer and owner, the Signature Development Group. Along with 241 housing units, the 308,270 sq. ft. building includes 3,000 sq. ft. of ground floor commercial tenant space and 241 parking spaces. The waterfront project is located at the corner of Brooklyn Basin Way and 9th Street and is adjacent to a park. The building’s façade features a range of materials including concrete, metal siding, cement and glass.
Conco’s responsibilities on the project included providing concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, finishing, shotcrete, and Confoam services. We placed 19,850 cubic yards of Confoam and 8,500 cubic yards of concrete as well as shotcrete. Conco also provided 1,400,000 pounds of rebar and post tension reinforcement.
Another couple of projects we recently provided concrete services for are the Hanover Waverly and the Hanover Uptown at Valdez Street and 27th Street. Both projects are developed by the Houston-based owner, the Hanover R.S. Limited Partnership. The Hanover Waverly is a 7-story, mixed-use project that consists of 224 apartments and 22,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail. The architect, TCA Architects designed the contemporary-style structure to take advantage of the curved lot and highlights the building’s location. The Hanover Waverly also offers below grade parking with 226 parking stalls and has an exterior comprised of high quality materials including stone, brick, glass, metal wall panels and cement plaster.
The Hanover Uptown is a 7-story, mixed-use project that consists of 253 residential units including studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, and more than 33,100 sq. ft. of ground floor retail. For both projects, Conco provided concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, finishing, and shotcrete services.
