A preliminary permit application has been filed for a new five-story apartment complex at 4655 Steele Street in Oakland’s Redwood Heights neighborhood. The property was occupied by the temporarily closed Oakland Public School Diagnostic Center and is owned by the Oakland Unified School District. If built, the site would be transformed with over four dozen affordable workforce homes, retail, and community space.

Plans have been floated for a six-story affordable housing development on the Edward Shands Adult Education Center campus in East Oakland, Alameda County. The pre-application would add 113 apartments at 2455-2501 Church Street, including four dozen units of housing for the unhoused within three existing two-story structures. The Oakland Unified School District is the property owner.
New renderings have been revealed, and development permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use infill at 707 Washington Street in Downtown Oakland, Alameda County. The application uses the State Density Bonus program, adding affordable housing to increase the capacity from 25 to 38 units. Schaub Li Architects is responsible for the design.
Aerial renderings have been provided for the West Oakland Mandela BART Station development, spanning 5.58 acres around 1451 7th Street. The development hopes to create new homes, a life science laboratory, thriving retail, and a network of public open spaces to reshape former surface parking into a new urban heart for the burgeoning area. The project is a joint development dubbed CHEC-SUDA-Hensel Phelps.
Increased plans have been filed for a vacant lot at 707 Washington Street, between 7th and 8th Street in Downtown Oakland. The newest proposal expects to create 50 new homes, up from a 24-unit application in 2014. Ronnie Turner of Turner Development Resource Group is responsible for the project.
