WA Rose Construction; upgrade for a downtown Oakland apartment building

Uptown Mixed-Use Upgrade, Oakland

W.A Rose Construction managed an exterior upgrade to this mixed-use building in Oakland’s Uptown neighborhood. The street level is retail; on the second floor are apartments. The building is on a busy street close to downtown Oakland. We replaced 16 windows with new Marvin tilt pac, dual-pane windows that significantly muffle ambient noise for the building’s residents and customers. The building’s penthouse got a new door and the entire building received a dramatic new paint job.

Project Challenges

The W.A. Rose carpenters milled new siding to replace those areas of the building with dry rot. One of our trusted partners created new dentil (trim) to replace the worn areas around the building’s roof line.

The Results

Safer, lighter, brighter and quieter for the building’s residents. The formerly nondescript building is now a welcome upgrade to the neighborhood. This is a handsome building!
