Oakland: 612 18th St - The Jefferson Mixed-Use Building Now Under Construction

We first posted about this proposed new mixed-use building on 18th and Jefferson in downtown Oakland back in June, when it seemed that construction might soon commence. I'm happy to confirm that just a few months later, the site now appears to be under construction. This lot formerly housed a one-story commercial building which has already been demolished and heavy construction equipment was on site last Saturday.

The new 6-story structure will bring 80 new residential units to downtown Oakland's Uptown neighborhood along with a ground floor retail space. Though downtown Oakland has seen lots of proposals for new housing, this is one of only a handful of developments that have actually broken ground. Let's hope more is on the way!
