OAKLAND | 1261 Harrison Street | FT | FL

Quote:
At 1261 Harrison Street, at the corner of 13th in Downtown Oakland . . . .

As designed by Lowney Architecture, the 36-story tower would yield 185 condos over 120,000 square feet of office space and 12,000 square feet of restaurant/retail at its base . . . . currently only zoned for development up to 275 feet in height, the project team is planning to leverage a State Density Bonus in order to achieve the extra height for the 1261 Harrison Street tower as proposed.

After plans for Oakland's tallest tower are shot down, Chinese developer vows to redesign project

Quote:
Plans for what would have been Oakland’s tallest building are dead.

Pinnacle RED Group’s proposed 36-story highrise at 1261 Harrison St. will not move forward in its current form. The Planning Commission decided not to vote on the project Wednesday night to give Pinnacle time to redesign the proposal in the coming months.

First proposed last year, the building would have topped 440 feet — taller than any other tower in Oakland — and consisted of 185 units, 130,000 square feet of office space and 12,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor.

That's too bad. Cool design. Would be fun to see Oakland compete with SF and create a valley in the bay surrounded by high rises.

Is Oakland afraid of tall buildings?

A height decrease wouldn't be a bad thing, the previous reiteration looked a bit tall....but it could've worked if the city allowed the area to densify around the project. Hopefully the design is better...coloured spandrel would look terrible.

Shouldn't this be in the Oakland thread?

Nowadays it's more a fear of seeing locals pushed out due to gentrification.

...Threats to Oakland live-work housing have been mounting for years, due to development, encroaching cannabis business, and a city code-enforcement crackdown. Shadetree’s shoreline locale, its position within Oakland’s cannabis-permitted “green zone,” and location in the center of plans for Brooklyn Basin made it particularly vulnerable. Donna Smithey, 66, a 5th Avenue resident who helped organize the acquisition, said that when the Westphals offered to sell to the tenants, she thought it was just a face-saving gesture before eviction. “I don’t think they expected us to get it together,” she said...

Yawns. You can lose the "dumb" and "failing" trolling nonsense because nobody cares. I don't agree with opposing new development but you are incorrect, the thousands of new units that have been built and are being built in Oakland have shown zero benefit to lower and middle income renters and families-that's a fact.

the fundamental problem is that construction costs are the same as in SF, but rents are much much lower. soft costs can be lower with a somewhat shorter entitlement process and lower land values, but big projects like these are really tough to pencil in oakland.

getting closer, but not there yet.
