Fruitvale Village has to be one of the most beautiful transit oriented developments in the country. This was the first photo I shot walking off of the train at the Fruitvale BART Station, and it just happened to be my favorite. I got an exclusive tour of the village from one of the site developers and wrote about it in a previous article. I also posted a few additional photos there.
While I certainly had my criticisms of project, I think it is one of the best TODs I’ve seen in person. It looks so beautiful. If you take a tour of the Bay Area on BART, be sure to stop at this station. The rest of Oakland isn’t half bad itself.
