Oakland: 5110 Telegraph - Major Temescal Project Proposed and Rendered

Rendering: Nautilus Group
Back in April, we came across several different renderings that showed a proposed development on that large empty lot at the NE corner of 51st and Telegraph on the northern edge of Oakland's Temescal neighborhood. Two major San Francisco architectural firms (Natoma Architects and Fougeron Architects) had proposals for the site listed on their respective websites but it wasn't clear if these were serious proposals. Now, we've finally discovered that this project is not only real but we even found some renderings thanks to a new website by developer Nautilus Group.

Though the project is still in its planning phase, it is slated to include 200 apartments. Current plans also call for a grocery store and plenty of retail which will, of course, fit in nicely with the surrounding Telegraph commercial corridor. The project would also include a pedestrian shortcut that would allow people to much more easily cut through to Frog Park from Telegraph and points west.

It's always exciting to see a key property redeveloped, especially as this site is currently so underused. This is a very nice looking building (loving those rooftop gardens!) that will really enhance the look and feel of this corner. The new building would be just around the corner from an already approved project by the Nautilus Group at 4700 Telegraph.

Let's hope this project moves forward soon! Check out the project's website at 51standtelegraph.com

There were plans for redeveloping this site in 2006. I'm not sure why that didn't happen but here's the project site for that: http://www.vmwp.com/projects/civiq.php and an East Bay Express article: http://www.insidebayarea.com/localnews/ci_3452014
