Recent photographs show significant progress has been made in phase one of the waterfront Brooklyn Basin development in Oakland since the last site visit by SFYIMBY. Groundbreaking has occurred for 845 Embarcadero, wood is rising for Parcel A, and a platform for future pedestrian space by Parcel J is taking shape. Oakland-based Signature Development Group is developing the project, with joint financing from Signature, China-based Zarsion Holdings Group, and Reynolds & Brown.
Anton DevCo is poised to receive approval for Parcel D’s Final Development Permit along the Oakland waterfront. The proposed residential building will rise at One Ninth Avenue. Parcel D is part of the twelve-building Brooklyn Basin development master plan that is transforming an industrial portion of Oakland’s waterfront adjacent to the Jack London district. Anton DevCo is responsible for the development after purchasing the rights to develop in 2019. Signature Development and Reynolds & Brown manage the 3,100-unit masterplan for Brooklyn Basin.
New building permits have been filed for an eight-story apartment building, part of the massive twelve-building, 3,100-unit Brooklyn Basin development along the Oakland Waterfront. Addressed at 845 Embarcadero, Parcel G will bring affordable housing, retail, and amenities across an oddly-shaped footprint. Oakland-based Signature Development Group is developing the project, with joint-financing from Signature, China-based Zarsion Holdings Group, and Reynolds & Brown.
A site visit by SF YIMBY shows construction is well underway for the Brooklyn Basin development, one of the largest in the city of Oakland with thousands of units and two planned skyscrapers. One of the residential structures is already accepting move-ins, and two others are nearing completion. Located adjacent to the gentrifying Jack London District, it is a new mixed-use district with 3,100 new units, 200,00 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, a few marinas, and thirty acres of public parks.
