The city of Oakland has proposed to design and construct a new community center at Mosswood Park, Mosswood, Oakland. The project proposes to create a new hub to offer civic, cultural, educational activities for Oakland residents. Mosswood Park spans eleven acres, located in North Oakland and is surrounded by streets on three sides and the 580 freeway to the south. The objective of the new building project is to create a state-of-the art facility that will foster a sense of community, wellness, recreation and learning.
New development permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 469 40th Street in Mosswood, Oakland. The medium-density residential in-fill will add a collection of residences in a transit-rich neighborhood with buses and BART within two blocks. Flynn Architecture is responsible for the design.
