MacArthur Transit Village 2

MacArthur Transit Village (MTV) is a mixed-use Transit-Oriented Development now under construction adjacent to, and on top of, the former surface parking lot for the MacArthur BART Station in North Oakland.

According to the official website, the project will "provide 624 new housing units on a 7.76 acre site, of which 516 units will be market rate and 108 units will be below market rate. The development includes construction of five buildings for high density, multifamily housing, with a new 478-space parking garage for BART patrons and guests. In addition, 42,500 square feet of local commercial and retail space will be constructed, along with 5,000 square feet of space for community use. Phase 1 of construction will commence in May 2011, which includes demolition of adjacent motel properties, along with construction of the BART parking garage and site infrastructure. Construction of affordable apartments will follow in 2012, along with development of the remaining parcels phased from 2014 through 2021." 1

On Thursday, September 19, 2013 construction began on Phase 2 of the MacArthur Transit Village at the MacArthur BART Station. Phase 2 is a new 90-unit affordable housing community developed by BRIDGE Housing. The project is located in the southeastern section of the existing parking lot. Completion is planned for spring 2015. Construction of the new housing structure and new streets will close a large section of the existing parking lot. BART riders should use other means to reach the MacArthur BART Station rather than driving, such as free shuttles or AC Transit buses. A brochure with information on alternatives is available at the MacArthur BART Station or can be viewed or downloaded at

In late October, a portion of the BART Plaza will close for reconstruction. The reconstruction will include a new bike storage facility and additional security features. The closed area will not block access to or from the BART Station. For more information, please visit
