Yet another large project proposed Oakland, this time just north of downtown in the city's Pill Hill neighborhood. The site is near the Alta Bates Summit hospital and across the street from the St. Augustine Episcopal Church. Initially approved before the recession, this 5-story project is slated to include 162 market-rate units as well as a modest 4,000 square feet of retail space. Eliminating such a huge dead zone will definitely help bring more life to this area and will provide much needed housing close to major job centers. The project will also benefit from a redesigned Telegraph Ave which promises to make the area a nice and more comfortable place to walk and bike.
