Signature Properties to develop for-sale homes at Fruitvale Transit Village
East Bay Business Times - by Jessica Saunders

Signature Properties has submitted preliminary plans for up to 450 condominiums in the second phase of Fruitvale Transit Village in Oakland, an award-winning mixed-use development centered around BART's fourth-busiest station.

The first phase of the transit-oriented development, which opened next to Fruitvale BART station in 2003 and was completed in 2004, includes 47 apartments, 114,510 square feet of office space, 39,707 square feet of retail, and 850 parking spaces. The second phase, set to break ground in mid-2009, will initially include 92 for-sale units, with two additional phases up to a maximum 450 units.

Signature Properties was chosen as the phase II residential developer a year ago, but its involvement wasn't announced until Sept. 27, about the time it filed with the Oakland Planning Commission. The Pleasanton-based builder spent the year working with BART and developing "very, very conceptual" preliminary plans, Signature Properties President Michael Ghielmetti said.

"We are really excited about the neighborhood. ... It's a really cool place most of the world doesn't know about," he said.
