Bay Street, the 20-acre urban village currently under construction in Emeryville, CA, today announced the addition of several new tenants including Apple.
Joining the Apple retail store in the village will be Coach, Abercrombie & Fitch, Cingular Wireless and Fuddruckers, a 16-screen AMC Theater, Barnes & Noble, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, Talbots, Ann Taylor Loft, J. Jill, Chico’s, Banana Republic, and many others.
The facility — called a “gathering place” not a mall — is now 85 percent leased, according to Eric Hohmann, vice president of development for Madison Marquette.
The site is located at the I-80 and I-580 interchange. Hohmann said that more than 260,000 cars pass the site daily. Once complete, Bay Street will include retail, residential, restaurant, hotel and entertainment offerings. It will feature more than 65 shops, nine indoor/outdoor restaurants and a 16-screen AMC Theater as well as 284 apartments, 80 townhouses and a 250-room hotel.
The project comprises three city blocks connected by Bay Street, a traditional main street. The retail portion will serve as the foundation for the residential units, which will be located above the retail. Construction on the housing component is underway with the first phase of units available in summer 2003.
