Oakland: 301 12th Street - 400+ Unit Mixed-User To Replace Charter School

A huge new development is planned for two adjacent lots in Oakland's Chinatown neighborhood. The larger of the 2 buildings would take over an entire block bounded by 12th, Harrison, 11th, and Webster. A smaller adjacent lot on the corner of 12th and Harrison would house the second structure.

Both of the new buildings would rise 7 stories tall and include a generous amount of retail space. 339 apartment units are planned for the larger structure while the smaller lot would hold 77 units. Across the two lots, 26,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space is planned. Architects for the project are VTBS with The Martin Group developing the project. 

Given the large size of the development, it would really help to improve the pedestrian experience in the area as neither lot currently offers much for people walking by. The new structures would only be a few blocks from both the 12th Street and Lake Merritt BART stations. Also nearby are several planned developments including the full block redevelopment at 13th and Alice. Other proposals include the high-rise at 14th and Alice and the under construction 1100 Jackson

With Oakland Charter High School currently occupying the sites (the smaller lot is used for school-related recreational activities), there are surely going to be some questions about a future home for the school. Let's hope that a suitable new home can be found for the school so this development can move forward without unnecessary delays.
