Brooklyn Basin Shoreline Enhancements
A Measure DD Project
of the few vacant sites along the waterfront, Brooklyn Basin (site
outlined in blue) provides an
opportunity for a visual connection to the water from the freeway and
adjacent neighborhoods. It also offers an opportunity for limited commercial
development combined with shoreline access.
The project will close a .1 mile Bay Trail gap.

Wolfe Mason Associates completed survey, prepared
base maps, and began preliminary design work, but the Port of Oakland
began entertaining a developer proposal. If development proceeds, BCDC
will require the developer to construct the trail. Measure DD project
was on hold for two years; the Port then entertained an offer from the
City but did not find it acceptable. The City has proposed construction
of an interim trail, but the Port has not responded. Discussions
between the City and Port are ongoing.
Measure DD bonds: $3.3 million.
Maintenance. The project will be maintained the City
of Oakland with funds provided by the
and Lighting Assessment District.
