Completed TOD projects
Together with BART's community and developer partners, the transit-oriented development program has completed twelve developments at eleven stations, totaling 1,975 housing units and 194,000 square feet of commercial space. Four additional developments are in construction stages as of late 2017 and are described on the Upcoming TOD Projects page. Many of BART's completed projects are the first of multiple phases, with additional phases either under construction or still in planning stages, as noted in the project descriptions.
- BART partnered with BRIDGE housing in 1993 to build Strobridge Court Apartments, a $75 million project with 96 affordable units, along with the restoration of a historic Victorian, and a BART zone command police facility. This was BART's first TOD project.
Richmond Phase I
- BART has partnered with the City of Richmond to build the Richmond Transit Village, which presently includes 132 (50% affordable) new for-sale townhome units with a new plaza, paseo and transit facility and 769-space parking structure.
- The residential developer of the first phase was the Olson company.
- The completion of the City’s recent Nevin Avenue Streetscape Project has paved the way for the next phase of the Transit Village that will develop the former BART parking lot and adjacent City property on the east side of the station in Phase II.
Fruitvale Phase I
- The first phase of the Fruitvale Transit Village was completed in 2004. Considered to be one of the best examples of TOD in the nation, this development was led by the Spanish speaking Unity Council, a community-based organization, in close partnership with the City of Oakland.
- The project features 47 mixed income housing units, 37,000 square feet of ground floor retail, the 27,000 square foot Arise Charter High School, and 71,000 square feet of public space including La Clinica de la Raza health clinic, a senior center, a Head Start preschool, and California's first Spanish-oriented public library.
- The project cost was $100 million and included a BART replacement parking garage. Phase II is in the planning stages and will be constructed in two developments on city-owned property.
Fruitvale Phase II
- In the mid-1990s, Fruitvale Transit Village was planned as a multi-block development on BART property. In 2010, BART sold its surface parking lot between 35th and 37th Avenues to the Oakland Redevelopment Agency.
- The City of Oakland worked with the Unity Council, East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC), and BRIDGE Housing and completed construction on Phase IIA in 2019 which includes 92 units of affordable housing and two units of market rate housing. The project also include two developments envisioned as 275 mixed-income housing units and an urgent care facility for La Clinica de la Raza.
- Phase IIB will develop 181 units of affordable housing and a 6,000 square foot space for a non-profit tenant. The Unity Council and BRIDGE Housing have partnered for Phase IIB. The project is fully approved and seeking funding.
Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Centre (partial)

- The next phase of the development will include an additional 200 units of market-rate rental housing and 2,300 square feet retail in November 2017.
- The third and final phase on BART property is entitled as a 12-story, 290,000 square foot office or hotel development.
- BART and the City of Berkeley partnered to create the Ed Roberts Campus, an 80,000 square foot non-profit, universally designed, transit-oriented campus.
- The Ed Roberts Campus houses offices of collaborating non-profit organizations as well as an array of disability-related services and programs, including fully accessible meeting rooms, a computer/media resource center, a fitness center, a cafe and a child development center. This campus provides centralized services to support independent living for people with disabilities.

- The TOD included 170 townhome units, as well as a new award-winning City Hall and Civic Center, plaza, and Greyhound ticket facility.
- BART, the Alameda County Surplus Property Authority, and the City of Dublin worked in close partnership to consolidate BART's surface parking in a seven story parking garage.
