OAKLAND | Brooklyn Basin

A derelict stretch of brownfields and abandoned warehouses along the Oakland waterfront are set to be redeveloped as a new residential and commercial district:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Controversial Oakland Waterfront Project Underway After 13 Years



Quote:
Abandoned warehouses and manufacturing lands are being transformed into a sustainable urban mixed-use master-planned community on the Oakland Estuary—a move forward, developers say, for a forgotten part of Oakland’s history. The project, Brooklyn Basin, is being developed by Oakland Harbor Partners, which includes Oakland-based Signature Harbor Partners, owned by James and Michael Ghielmetti, commercial development firm Reynolds & Brown, and Chinese-based Zarsion Holdings Group.

The $1.5 billion project sits on 65 acres of waterfront property on the Oakland Estuary of San Francisco Bay. When completed it will contain 3,100 residential units, approximately 200,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, and a marina with up to 200 boat slips. More than 30 acres have been set aside for waterfront parks and open space. An estimated 10,000 jobs will be created by its build-out. It is the one of the biggest residential projects ever in Oakland’s history and is currently one of the largest Chinese investments in a U.S. project.

---

The majority of the buildings of the proposed project are under 8 stories tall, but the proposal includes several high-rise towers ranging from 20 to 24 stories, and perhaps as tall as 28 stories. Most of the Ninth Avenue Terminal building would be demolished and replaced by park area, though about 9% of this historic structure would be preserved.
