Oakland: Rendering Shows New Jack London Square Tower Project

Rendering: KTGY
While browsing through an architect's website, like one does on a weeknight evening, I came across an nice rendering of a 24-story tower located in Oakland's Jack London Square district. Unfortunately, the architect KTGY does not provide an exact location for the tower, with only two clues that might help identity the location: it is adjacent to the Oakland Waterfront Historic District and also near Lake Merritt BART. The website also states that the tower will include 275 residential units as well as 2,500 square feet of commercial space - which doesn't match any projects currently pending with the city.

While the project bears some resemblance to a preliminary rendering submitted with an application for a proposed waterfront development, the details of the two projects don't seem to match up quite right. If you have any insider info or are great a recognizing ghost buildings in renderings, please let us know where this one is located in the comments!

Wherever this project may be, let's hope it's serious proposal with some serious money behind it because this would be a very nice addition to the area.

That has to be the approved Ellis Partners tower between Harrison and Alice Street.

There might be a discrepancy in some of the details, but it could be just the updated design of Harrison and Alice St.

I'd guess the foot of Harrison, below the railway tracks, across from the Jack London Market building. There is a surface parking lot there now. They have been doing soil and groundwater tests such for a project. Developer could be CIM maybe?

Agree with all the above: the surface lot between Harrison, Alice & Embarcadero.
Background building detail agrees with imagery: https://www.google.com/maps/@37.7893714,-122.2730603,487a,20y,41.54t/data=!3m1!1e3

Closest Google StreetView location: https://www.google.com/maps/@37.7926196,-122.2725622,3a,41.6y,349.44h,93.12t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sDU5EWCx-lymqbep1Rpxy-g!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

The big disconnect is the rendering shows auto traffic on what would be an extension of the pedestrian/bike path.
