Project / Program Description
The Richmond Transit Village project is located on approximately 16.7 acres centered around the Richmond BART and Amtrak Stations. The project is being constructed in two phases, and will consist of a total of 231 units of ownership housing to be developed by The Olson Company.
The Olson Company plans to construct these facilities:
27,250 square feet of retail space
A3,700 square foot inter-modal transit station which will house facilities for transit operators
A five-story, 800-space garage facility that will include 9,000 square feet of ground-floor retail
Multiple townhouses and live-work units
Phase I is on the west side of the existing BART station and will include 132 units of housing, approximately 7,500 square feet of retail, a five story, 800-space BART parking garage, and an additional 9,000 square feet of ground floor retail space.
Phase I has also elevated the Nevin Avenue walkway, which provides primary access to the transit station from the west and leads pedestrians to a plaza, immediately west of the BART station, where the new 3,700 square foot inter-modal transit building is under construction.
Phase II will consist of 99 housing units, approximately 10,750 square feet of retail space, and will elevate the Nevin Avenue walkway to provide enhanced transit access to the station from the east. All Phase II improvements will be constructed on the east side of the existing BART station.
