Transportation: AC Transit and the 51 Bus Line

AC Transit has proposed numerous changes to its 51 bus line along University Avenue. One major change would be to restrict parking on parts of Univivery Avenue from 4-7pm on weekdays. The UAA has been actively working with stakeholders to make sure the proposed changes make sense for our local merchants.

New Projects on University Avenue

There are some interesting developments in the works. In West Berkeley, the 800 University project has been approved by the City and would add housing, commercial and office space at the foot of the Avenue. Three projects are proposed on the block between McGee and Milvia: one at the existing Firestone Tires site, one between Travelodge and Nation’s, and one at McGee. Together, these developments would add vibrancy in the form of new residents and revitalized streetscape.

New Development Projects


There are some interesting developments in the works. In West Berkeley, the 800 University project has been approved by the City and would add housing, commercial and office space at the foot of the Avenue. Three projects are proposed on the block between McGee and Milvia: one at the existing Firestone Tires site, one between Travelodge and Nation’s, and one at. Together, these developments would add vibrancy in the form of new residents and revitalized streetscape.

The building of new mixed-use projects was slowed by the recession. Now several dormant project have come back to life, some with new owners. New projects are winding their way through the permitting process. The University Avenue Associations supports density and increased retail opportunities. We also want to help make these projects work for the Avenue and the neighborhoods. Quality retail space that is attractive to potential tenants is important. Narrow sidewalks are a problem on the Avenue and new zoning code requires an average two foot setback on the ground floor. Set-backs, especially the 5th floor help mitigate impacts on the residual neighbors behind projects.
