New building permits have been filed to construct four single-unit structures at 3559-3589 Coolidge Avenue, located in Oakland’s Dimond District.

Planning permits were filed in 2019 for a three-unit plan by Ripple Ideas LLC, but the filing remains incomplete, and the new building applications show the four-unit plan moving forward.
