The Shops at the Ridge

Oakland, California, USA


JRDV Urban International is the lead designer of the redevelopment of the Rockridge Shopping Center in Oakland, California. The project includes over 400,000 GSF, making it the largest retail project in the history of Oakland. Phase 1 was completed in 2016 and Phase 2 is currently under construction. The project includes both luxury destination shopping as well as locally serving retail, including the largest Safeway store ever built.

The project is located on the site of the historic Bilger Quarry, where the Oakland Hills meet the urban/hip neighborhoods of Rockridge and Temescal. The project will serve as the commercial link between College Avenue and Piedmont Avenue, two of the finest neighborhood commercial streets in the western USA. The project’s design draws from the rich tradition of understated elegance found in surrounding neighborhoods, incorporating eclectic Mediterranean and craftsman design in a manner tightly integrated with nature.
