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.
