The historic Civic Center Post Office, the Social Security Administration Building on Jackson Street, the Alameda County Law Library, the Alameda County Courthouse, and two Alameda County government office buildings are all neatly packed into the Civic Center neighborhood, and ideally situated on its outskirts are a number of mid-rise and high-rise mixed-use developments that also help fill out the area’s dense landscape.
