The Central Estuary is a significant commercial and industrial hub for Oakland, with many successful and growing businesses and industries, with clusters of specialty industries including food production, raw materials production and custom production. The Central Estuary Area Plan provides a vision for the future of the central waterfront enhancing these growing industries coexisting with a broad mix of housing types and regionally important waterfront open space and recreational amenities. The Central Estuary’s “funky” vibe is evidence of its underlying “maker” culture. Development opportunities are focused on multi-family and commercial uses to the north, live/work infill in the center and light industrial/R&D in the south. A Supplemental Environmental Impact Report was certified for the Plan, creating the possibility of a streamlined entitlement process for projects consistent with the Plan.
