Transit Oriented Development: Emeryville, CA



The development of the Emeryville Amtrak Station and the surrounding office, retail and residential uses provides a unique example of a long-term, multiphase redevelopment oriented around transit. This 20-acre mixed-use development known as EmeryStation sits on a former brownfield site and includes new construction as well as reuse of old industrial buildings.

What a great development.  Something like this surrounding the proposed transit hub would be perfect.

That's one of the reasons we're pushing for commuter rail

The S-Line is a 4.5-mile former CSX rail line that snakes through the Northside, from just north of the Prime Osborn Center up to Gateway Mall. The most important aspect of this right of way is that it is already owned by the City of Jacksonville. It also keeps a potential commuter rail system from interfering with the rail yards adjacent to the Beaver Street viaduct. Although no funding is in place, the city has plans to convert this right-of-way into a rails-to-trails jogging path. Given that the ROW is a minimum of 50’ in width, it could easily serve both with proper planning. Unlike BRT, this line also has the power of putting riders within walking distance of Edward Waters College, Shands, the farmer’s market, and Gateway Mall. In addition, it can be the catalyst for affordable housing infill development, something that BRT’s Northern extension will not be able to successfully do.

Imagine something like this in LaVilla if the Prime Osborne is ever turned back into a train station.

If the plan does not change, we might not have any room left over for significant additional infill development.  Our transportation center would suck up most of the blocks, west of Lee Street.
