SPUR Walking Tour: Exploring Oakland: Uptown
"Over a decade ago, Oakland embarked on a major project to remake the northern edge of its downtown. Dubbed “Uptown,” the mixed-use community developed by Forest City includes 665 rental apartments (25 percent of which are affordable units), 9,000-square-feet of neighborhood retail space and a 25,000-square-foot public park. Hear how this LEED Silver residential project (Oakland’s first) fits into the City’s plans for future growth. With Abigail Friedland and Jim Ostrom of Forest City and Jens Hillmer of the Community and Economic Development Agency of the City of Oakland."
