Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Oakland Army Base (CA) conversion approved
Oakland Army Base plan OKd by City Council

The Oakland City Council late Tuesday approved a series of agreements with developers on the conversion of the former Oakland Army Base. It will be the city's largest development in decades.

The proposed project intends to remake the 366-acre base into a shipping, packaging and distribution facility, augmenting the adjacent Port of Oakland.

Though the $484 million first phase of the project had overcome a series of hurdles during the past four years, it became the center of a fight over how many of the project's jobs would go to Oakland residents. The council vote was critical to securing a $242 million grant from state officials, who, city staff said, had set a Tuesday deadline to show that the slow-moving project was moving forward.
