This Opportunity Site is included in the West Oakland Specific Plan. It is close to Ikea and four blocks from Target, ToyRus and other major retailers and it builds on the existing creative light industrial live-work community in the adjacent blocks. Close to the Mandela Parkway Blvd., with freeway, bus and Bart access.
This site is one of the Opportunity Sites within the Mandela/West Grand Opportunity Area. The Mandela/West Grand Opportunity Area was once one of the Bay Area’s larger industrial areas at the urbanizing edge of the San Francisco Bay. Through this Specific Plan, the Mandela/West Grand Opportunity Area is envisioned as the key regional job center of West Oakland, with the largest concentration of Opportunity Sites and where the economic development potential is greatest.
