• NOBE neighborhood (north oakland, berkeley, emeryville)
  • .5 miles from Bart
  • AC Transit line stop
  • Car sharing pod

“NOBE” (North Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville) is one of the most economically and culturally diverse sections of the Bay Area. Oakland is quickly becoming one of the hottest cities in the country, with new restaurants, art, and businesses taking root.  Berkeley is a national hub for learning and culture, and Emeryville is filled with global biotech and life sciences jobs and great shopping.  The Intersection is located a few blocks from the headquarters of Pixar and Novartis, some of Emeryville’s largest employers.  With gardens, parks, and well-loved neighborhood restaurants like Arizmendi Bakery, Farley’s Coffee, and Rudy’s Can’t Fail Café, great neighborhood amenities are paired with easy access to all forms of transit for easy access to San Francisco and the rest of the East Bay.


the INTERSECTION involves the rehabilitation of the historic Maz Building into a vibrant commercial center that anchors the intersecting streets of San Pablo Ave, Adeline St., West MacArthur Blvd, and 39th St. on the borders of West Oakland and Emeryville. It includes 105 residential apartments, 25,000 square feet of commercial space, and residential and commercial parking.

Located in the core of a transit district, residents will benefit from the development’s innovative bike friendly design and access to public transit, which hosts a stop for several transit lines serving Oakland and Emeryville offers residents free bus passes, and is a short walk to MacArthur BART Station (0.5 miles).

Car sharing pods and electric car charging stations will be available to residents and visitors.

the INTERSECTION green features include solar PV to power the commercial space and solar-assisted heating and hot water for the residential units.  A new rain garden and public park is being constructed along West Macarthur Boulevard” adjacent to the INTERSECTION, which will add the appeal of a great sunny public space while providing an additional green feature that filters and recycles rain water.

For over 20 years, Holliday Development has been a pioneer of urban development – Similar to all Holliday Development projects, the INTERSECTION will have a long term impact on its tenants and residents, but more importantly on the neighborhood and surrounding community.

Commercial Services

The commercial space at the INTERSECTION will celebrate local entrepreneurs and healthy living. The organic grocer will be a key tenant driving traffic to the building by offering an array of fresh produce and foods. A restaurant started by an award winning chef will create a destination that draws people from the greater region. The adjacent tenant will host a café and co-working space to incubate entrepreneurs, offering the ability to keep costs down through sharing facilities, services, and ideas. The Fast Freddie Foundation serving disadvantaged youth, an organization that was instrumental in the bike friendly conception of this project, will lease space in the building to serve as headquarters for the foundation and mentoring program. The commercial space will serve as an amenity to the residents, and will include an art gallery featuring rotating works by local artists.
