Tidewater Capital Receives Final Approvals on Oakland Projects
San Francisco-based Tidewater Capital has received final approvals for both 533 Kirkham, a 289-unit residential development in West Oakland, and a 381-unit project at 1431 Franklin in the city’s Downtown. Both projects will be built on sites currently occupied by parking lots.
“We’re pleased to have the support of the full Planning Commission for our development at 533 Kirkham in West Oakland and, in Downtown, the final approval of 1431 Franklin,” said Tidewater Capital principal Ross Stackhouse. “With 533, Tidewater will now be able to bring new housing to an underutilized parking lot adjacent to BART, expediting the transformation of the surrounding blocks into a burgeoning mixed-use neighborhood.
He continued, “Oakland’s Downtown will meanwhile benefit from new housing that provide residents walkability to the city’s vibrant and diverse urban core — supporting the restaurants, retail, and other small businesses that call it home.”
