WEST OAKLAND STATION | Transit Development Project
Development Team Leadership
In order to assure the best outcome for the West Oakland BART Development project, China Harbor Engineering Company has supplemented and strengthened its development team with the addition of (via a joint-venture alliance) two strong local development team partners, Hensel Phelps and Strategic Urban Development Alliance, LLC (SUDA). Hensel Phelps and SUDA bring track records that rank them among the leading constructors of complex mixed-use projects both locally and throughout the United States. Many of their mixed-use projects include negotiations of public land, utilization of public financing, and/or undertaking construction and development through public/private partnerships.
Among many successes over the years, Hensel Phelps and SUDA jointly undertook the development of Thomas Berkley Square at 2000 San Pablo Ave., Oakland, CA. That mixed-use project included the development and construction of a 101,000 square foot build-to-suit office building that houses the headquarters for the County of Alameda Department of Social Services.
