You may or may not have heard about one of the biggest development projects to hit Oakland in decades: A waterfront community that will be called Brooklyn Basin.
I've had many clients recently ask about this project, after seeing billboards posted and the initial signs of site preparation at the location just southeast of Jack London Square. The project had been talked about for years, but wasn't able to get off the ground until recently.
Where is it?
The Brooklyn Basin development is located between the 880 Freeway and the Oakland Estuary, starting just beyond Oak Street and continuing to 9th Avenue. The site currently houses a number of industrial buildings and Port of Oakland property on 64 acres.
