Alexan Webster Alexan Webster is a 234-unit mixed-use mixed-income apartment community in Oakland.

SAN FRANCISCO—Danville broke a 12-year market-rate apartment construction drought by allowing Trammell Crow Residential to begin a $90 million development of 144 higher-end apartment units called Alexan Downtown Danville. And, Trammell Crow is underway with several other Bay Area projects in various stages of planning, development and leasing.

In Oakland, Trammell recently commenced pre-leasing the Alexan Webster, a 234-unit mixed-use/mixed-income apartment community. The project is being developed in a public-private venture with the city of Oakland and also contains 15% mixed-income units. Alexan Webster sits on the site of a former city surface parking lot in Lake Merritt neighborhood between Webster and Valdez streets at 23rd Street. The new community includes a replacement parking structure owned by the city and an apartment community including 15,000 square feet of retail and a rooftop deck with a public art installation. KTGY Architecture + Planning is the project’s designer.
