Metro 510 (Creekside Walk)

Project Name:

Metro 510 (Creekside Walk)


Southeastern Corner of the El Cerrito Plaza

Project Sponsor:

Creekside Walk Ventures LLC


Metro 510 (Creekside Walk) is a 128-unit apartment development with 19 units of affordable housing. It is being constructed on an existing surface parking area located in the southeast portion of the El Cerrito Plaza shopping center. The 3-plus acre Project site borders the City of Albany to the south.

The proposed 128 unit development will consist of two separate apartment buildings that total approximately 211,596 gross square feet. The housing mix includes six units affordable to low income households and thirteen units affordable to moderate income households.

Vehicles would access the parking garages via a central driveway on the western edge of the two buildings, with access both from the southern and northern side of the South Building, and from the western side of the North Building. (See 2007 Approved Plans.) Bicycle parking will be included for both guests and residents on the site.

As part of the proposed Project, an approximately 60 foot wide by 180 feet long portion of Cerrito Creek, currently culverted, would be daylighted and restored to a natural condition. In addition to daylighting this creek corridor, the applicant would provide a pedestrian path and a bike path that would connect to the Ohlone Greenway to the east. The restored channel would be designed to support a native riparian plant corridor, provide habitat, and stabilize the banks.


The project is under construction. Building permits were issued on July 7, 2015. Completion is expected in late Spring of 2018.

For inquiries on the affordable and market rate units, please contact Ravello Holdings, Inc. at (510) 629-0326.

Please note the City has no role in selecting applicants for this affordable housing development.
