Seagate Properties is working to build a 395-foot mixed-use tower at 88 Grand Avenue in the heart of Downtown Oakland. The development permits had been filed in 2018 and approved in 2020. The full structure will provide retail and residential housing on the Central Business District’s northern side, half a block from Broadway. With planning approved, the next step to anticipate will be groundbreaking.
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…
Permits have been approved to reduce residential units to be built at 10500 International Boulevard in the Elmhurst neighborhood of Oakland. The move reduces the eventual construction from offering 529 units to 393. While phase one is currently underway to build a seven-story and 324 unit structure, a planned phase two will now build just 69 units versus the initial 205 proposed. AMG & Associates LLC is responsible for the application.
New permits have been filed to add a fourth floor to proposed townhouses at 1608-1618 32nd Street in Clawson district of West Oakland. If approved, the construction will provide more housing in an area zoned for industrial, medium, and high-density residential developments. The plan will provide six residential units on top of a currently vacant lot. The neighborhood Dogtown Development Company is responsible for the project through Gold Standard Partners LLC.
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.
