Station Center is at the heart of Union City’s vision to create the Station District, a vibrant city center bustling with attractive store fronts, community parks and high-quality housing. Designed by award-winning architect David Baker + Partners, Station Center will provide 157 units of housing in an innovative plan that wraps apartment buildings around common areas to create an open feel. Landscape and open spaces were design by Fletcher Studio Landscape Architecture. The main open-arch entrance reveals a series of spaces for gathering. There are gardens, playgrounds, a fitness facility, a pool and a community center where programs will be offered to residents. The street frontage on the ground floor will be occupied by retail shops, restaurants, and businesses. BART and bus lines are also in close proximity, so residents can walk and take public transportation to-and-from this transit-oriented community. Sustainable design is a top priority with Station Center, which has committed to achieve at least a LEED Gold Certification.
