Banta, Boatworks Back with New Plan for Waterfront Site


Phillip Banta, the owner of a Clement Avenue property, will be back before the Planning Board, next Monday, July 11. The board will host a public hearing to consider and take action on Banta’s request to approve a development plan and density bonus applications. Banta hopes to build 182 residential units and offer approximately two acres of open space on 9.48-acres at 2235 Clement Ave.
In addition, the Planning Board will consider Banta’s request to approve the design for the Oakland Estuary waterfront along the property. 

Banta is also requesting that the board grant him a two-year extension on the map for the project that the board originally approved in 2011. This map includes Banta’s proposal to fill submerged lands so he can create more space to accommodate residential units and waterfront open space, a move that would require Bay Conservation and Development Commission approval. 

The Planning Board meets in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave. The July 11 meeting begins at 7 p.m.
