Oakland Planning Commission Hearing On 410 20th St Thomas Berkley Way Tall Building May 5th 2021

This is the full May 5th 2021 Oakland Planning Commission Hearing on Hines Real Estate Investments proposed 410 20th St tall building on Thomas Berkley Way.

It’s controversial for a host of reasons. First, it’s size: at 39-stories and 622-feet in height, the structure will be the largest office building ever constructed in Oakland – over 200-feet taller than the current local champ, The Ordway Building.

Second, the 864,000 square-foot structure is planned for offices. Thus, at a multiplier of 250 square feet per employee, that comes to 3,456 employees – the largest dump of worker jobs by a single private structure in Oakland’s history. That will put enormous pressure on an already expensive Oakland housing market and exacerbate the giant homeless problem.

Third, Hines says that the building will have no impact on its environment even with its giant size. That the wind impacts happen at the six-floor and up. That is a hard assertion to believe without seeing wind-tunnel video.

Fourth, the name of the building should be Thomas L. Berkley, but the developer did not even think about him. Indeed, the project leader called the famed, late, publisher of The Oakland Post a “politician”. That means they do not know the Oakland Post is the first and the largest black owned news paper on the West Coast.

Stay tuned.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
