In the late 1910’s, the Sherwin Williams Paint Company developed a series of industrial plants between Park Ave. and the Southern Pacific Railroad that would remain a predominant fixture in the Emeryville community for nearly 100 years.
As the times have changed, so too have the desires and will of the people of Emeryville. Demand for work-force housing and public open space have led the community to value the thoughtful redevelopment of underutilized land. Meeting with several community groups and invested stakeholders, the proposed development reflects these new desires and visions for a safe, resilient and vibrant Emeryville community.
The re-imagined Sherwin Williams development is comprised of a rich vocabulary of interpreted expressions of the City’s industrial roots and eclectic arts community. Active urban plazas and lush streetscapes tie together the unique character of the architecture, while setting the stage for a diverse array of community activities.
