Please join AIA East Bay to learn about SB 827, a bill before California’s State Senate which would supersede local zoning to increase the extent and density of development near transit. If passed, the bill would increase by-right building heights within one-half mile of rail stations. Allowable building heights would vary depending on the distance to train stations. To illustrate, new buildings within a 1/4 mile could reach 55 feet by-right. Farther out but within a 1/2 mile, building heights could be 45 feet.
We will examine SB 827’s implications on neighborhood form and explore planning opportunities as we hear from experts conversant in public policy, urban economics, and building and city design typologies.
The presentation will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.
