In the 1960s, the Ashby Station neighborhood was compromised by the gutting of several blocks for the BART station and its two parking lots. Nevertheless, streetscapes in the area retain a remarkable cohesion of scale and repeating styles.

Views of the surviving historic blocks across the BART parking lots reveal that the latter retain much of their original identity and period charm.


The Ed Roberts Campus will be built on the upper BART parking lot—the open space to the right of the green apartment building. Behind the parking lot one can see a 2-story Colonial Revival house on Tremont St. at Prince. (photo: Daniella Thompson, 2005)
