OAKLAND (KCBS)— A major residential development near Oakland’s Jack London Square is starting to take shape. Signature Development Group, the developer, behind the Brooklyn Basin says interest in the East Bay is still growing.
Since the groundbreaking in March along Oakland’s Embarcadero, crews have been cleaning up past industrial contamination of the former ship and lumber yard and are now finishing upgrading. Next up is the installation of the infrastructure.
“We should see buildings going up sometime next summer,” said the developer’s president, Michael Ghielmetti. He said the project is great and transformative and said it’s along the lines of San Francisco’s Mission Bay.
