The Oakland Planning Commission is scheduled to vote on plans for 415 20th Street in Downtown Oakland, a 38-story office building poised to be the largest building in the Bay Area outside of San Francisco. City Staff has recommended the commission give approval, subject to conditions, in tomorrow’s 3 PM meeting. The decision will be appealable to the city council. Hines is responsible for the 622-foot proposal.

Since our last story, renderings show what could become the tallest skyscraper in Oakland. Plans are heading to the city’s Design Review Committee next Wednesday for the 622-foot office building at 415 20th Street, Downtown…
Plans for a 622-foot office tower at 415 20th Street are heading to the Oakland Design Review Committee on January 27th. If it is built as proposed, the tower will become the tallest skyscraper in Downtown Oakland and the tallest building in California to not be in Los Angeles or San Francisco. The review requests permit approval for the design, conditional use for a large project, and variance for the maximum setback. Ultimately, the Oakland Planning Commission will make the final decision. Hines is backing the proposal, working through 415 20th Street LLC.
