Oakland: 70 Apartments Coming to 17th and Alice in Lakeside

A new 70-unit infill project has been announced for the Lakeside area of Downtown Oakland. The 6-story project is set to rise at 250 17th Street which is right at the corner of 17th and Alice, just a short walk from Lake Merritt. According to plans filed with the city, the development will not include any retail space which makes sense given the area's residential character. The site is currently home to the Alice Learning Center which is a childcare facility owned by the Oakland School District. According to a Loopnet listing, this facility is on a short-term lease but it is not clear whether there are plans to relocate it or shut it down. Still in its early planning stages, the project is being designed by San Francisco architects Kotas/Pantaleoni.
Some of these smaller projects may initially not seem very exciting but while the new towers proposed for Oakland may be making headlines, it is these smaller projects that will make Oakland a truly urban and livable place. Replacing one story structures and surface lots with more high density housing will bring more people to Downtown Oakland and create a sustainable, thriving and walkable urban center for the East Bay.
