Mayfair

Holliday Development and BRIDGE Housing are excited to join forces with Lowney Architecture, Cannon Constructors, and Rhoades Planning Group to bring the Mayfair site to life with a vibrant, mixed income and mixed use development that sets the stage for additional innovative, infill growth at the entire El Cerrito del Norte BART Station area. The Holliday and BRIDGE (HDBH) team envisions a new, sustainable community well integrated into the existing El Cerrito neighborhood that provides a variety of housing choices, including live-work and flex space, with amenities to support transit-oriented development with access to alternative transportation, open space, and local and neighborhood retail.

On the Mayfair site itself, we envision 200-240 units, with approximately 25% of the units affordable, built between two buildings that are joined by a central mews running from San Pablo to Kearny Street. Ground floor retail of 7,500-12,000 sq. ft. would orient towards BART on Cutting Boulevard and continue onto San Pablo Avenue to create an active street-front and provide more neighborhood serving retail to the community. Ground floor parking is anticipated to be at a ratio of 0.75/1, and the overall design would maximize features to encourage alternative modes of transit – among these features are a minimum of one-to-one secure bike parking, bike work stations and lounges, and multiple car-share spaces and charging stations..
