The city of Oakland, CA has been undergoing significant change over the recent years as prominent development groups and city officials work to revitalize existing structures and re-envision the lay of the land. Strada Investment Group and CIM Group, along with Bay Area commercial concrete contractors The Conco Companies, have joined these efforts with their work on a joint venture at 1100 Clay Street. This exciting mixed-use project is one of several in the companies’ portfolios and promises to contribute significantly to the evolving dynamic of downtown.
1100 Clay Street: a robust collaboration
The Strada Investment Group is a real estate investment company headquartered in San Francisco with expertise in research, acquisitions, asset management, and construction and development. The CIM Group is an owner and operator of a variety of real assets, including urban residential, commercial, retail, hospitality, and infrastructure investments. Together they conceived of the 16-story mixed-use residential tower at 1100 Clay Street and have partnered with area contractors to commence construction on the project. The residential component of the building will feature 288 apartment units with floorplans ranging from studios to three bedrooms, all outfitted with on-trend finishes and fixtures and large windows with excellent Bay Area views. Residents of the building will also benefit from a fitness center, co-working meeting spaces, a rooftop lounge, underground parking, and bike storage. 1100 Clay Street will also provide several public amenities, including 4,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and a landscaped pedestrian plaza next the building and stone’s throw from the 12th Street BART Station.
Laying a strong foundation
In order to make this vision possible, the project’s development groups partnered with the Conco Companies to provide a range of commercial concrete services. The work of concrete contractors is the foundation and backbone of many large-scale construction projects and Conco will be contributing 14,590 cubic yards of concrete and shotcrete as well as four million pounds of rebar and post-tension reinforcement to the endeavor. Known for its ability to take on complex projects while keeping them on budget and on schedule, Conco was tasked with the project’s concrete finishing, concrete pumping, concrete reinforcement, concrete formwork, construction trucking, and shotcrete services.
