Developer: Wexford Science + Technology
Project summary: Proposed new construction for commercial development. Reviewed at the March 27, 2019 Oakland-Wide Community Meeting. Developer returned to the Oakland-Wide Community Meeting on May 29, 2019 to present updates.
OPDC requested a copy of the transportation study for the proposal. Wexford notified OPDC on July 9 that the study was not yet available. Per input at the two Oakland-Wide Community Meetings, OPDC and a group of community members discussed a package of potential community benefits with Wexford. The community’s requested community benefits package and Wexford’s response are linked below. At this point, no community benefits agreement is in place.
Wexford’s ZBA hearing was schedule for July 11, 2019. Council President Bruce Kraus, at the request of OPDC and community members, requested that the hearing be postponed in order to further consider impact and community benefits. ZBA granted this request. Wexford will appear again at ZBA on July 25, 2019 at 9:40 a.m.
