Madison Marquette retained Thompson | Dorfman Partners to direct the design, permitting and project management for two multi-family projects to be built over a portion of a 400,000-square-foot retail center in Emeryville, California. The residential program consisted of 95 for-sale townhomes, 284 apartment homes, and associated parking, all designed in the air-rights parcel above the retail space. The project required creative design solutions to be implemented to maximize the value of the air-rights. Also unique to the project were separate ownership structures for the residential and retail components requiring Thompson | Dorfman to direct the negotiation of a reciprocal easement agreement to address the construction and operational issues.
