ONN – Planned Whole Foods Market 5110 Telegraph Oakland Seeks Public Comment

An urban planning consultant named Dwayne J. Kennedy and of a firm called “City Shapers” wrote a letter to Oaklanders in the Nextdoor social media platform.

Mr. Kennedy reported that he represented Whole Foods Markets, who is proposing a 30,061 square foot grocery store on the ground floor of the new and unfinished mixed-use building located at 5110 Telegraph in Oakland. He reports that a “conditional use permit” application has been filed with the City Of Oakland Planning and Zoning Department (Yes, the same one that called the police on a harmless former Oakland politician named Wilson Riles and for being a big, smart, black guy).

Mr. Kennedy writes that you can review the application numbered PLN18-531 on the 2nd Floor of 250 Frank Ogawa Plaza, the City Administration Building next to Oakland City Hall, which is at 1 Frank Ogawa Plaza. He says if you have questions, send an email to him at djkennedy@cityshapers.com by January 15, 2020.

The overall project is developed by an organization called RAD URBAN. The 210-apartment unit and retail complex is across the street from Kingfish Bar, and where Telegraph Avenue and 51st Avenue meet. The website is http://www.51standtelegraph.com

Stay tuned.

Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news 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-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 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.
