Now Presenting: New Parking

Oakland_parking_revisions

Yesterday, Neil Gray from the City of Oakland came to our office to present the recently adopted revisions to the City of Oakland's off-street parking requirements. The Bay Area development community, including real estate agents, developers, brokers, and funders, gathered at our office to hear the presentation and ask questions about the new revisions.

A summary of these changes can be found on the City of Oakland's website, or by following this link.

We plan to host more events like this at our office in the future. You can find information about upcoming events on our Facebook page or here on our website.

 

Never too Old for a Field Trip

This past Thursday, Lowney Architecture ventured out of the office and over to SFMOMA for some full-scale design inspiration. We took a guided tour of the Mario Botta building and Snøhetta addition, stopping in to appreciate the art exhibits along the way.

In the same trip, we stopped at Panoramic's office to experience the first of many MicroPAD units we have worked with Panoramic in designing, where we then answered the question, "How many architects does it take to fill an SRO unit?" (Answer: At least 18)

Afterward, we were treated to a beautiful dinner at Hakkasan, a Cantonese restaurant in the heart of San Francisco. (Highly recommend it!)
