The proposal is one of the largest among over a dozen highrise plans recently approved and proposed in Oakland. It would be the only one to combine residential and office space. No towers have yet started construction, but Lennar Multifamily's 1640 Broadway and Gerding Edlen's 1700 Webster St. have filed for building permits.
“We envision a vibrant mixed-use project along a major transit corridor that hits the trifecta of what Oakland needs right now,” said Ronnie Turner, a spokesman for Pinnacle Development Group and project consultant, in a statement. “Housing, office, and retail.”
In June, a pre-application was filed for a smaller 15-story tower at 1261 Harrison St., but the new, larger proposal will combine the adjacent parcel and span the northern half of an entire block.
