The AvéVista site is located in the Grand Lake district, a vibrant neighborhood in central Oakland near Lake Merritt. Plans to develop the site include the construction of a mid-rise building with four floors of residential over parking and retail to newly create 68 affordable rental homes for families and larger households.

Views of Lake Merritt, the Oakland Hills and the surrounding neighborhood will be visible from most of the completed units. The site is ideally located near ample public transit, shopping, restaurants and cafes, movie theaters, a farmers market, schools, and excellent outdoor recreational opportunities at Lakeside Park. While the new development will include ample parking, with a Walk Score of 89, its location will provide residents with the easy option to comfortably live without a car.
