Oakland Campus

In 2017, CCA selected the team of Equity Community Builders and Emerald Fund (ECB/Emerald) to develop plans for reuse of the current Oakland campus property, based on their experience creating places that strengthen and contribute to community vitality (see example of projects ECB has worked, including the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts and the Fort Mason Center here).

CCA has worked with ECB/Emerald to outline the goals future of the site, which include:

  • Honoring CCA’s arts and education legacy through inclusion of permanently affordable artist housing and creation of spaces dedicated to artists and the arts
  • Preserving key historic campus buildings and landscape
  • Providing market-rate housing for the neighborhood
  • Enhancing public access to the property.

Should you be interested in learning more about the proposal, ECB/Emerald will be presenting an update at the following upcoming meetings:

The proposal is preliminary and part of a multi-year long process to determine the future of the site. ECB/Emerald will continue community outreach through November 2018, at which point they will submit the proposal to the City of Oakland. After that point, the proposal will go through an extensive review process and public hearings. If accepted, construction on the site would not begin until after 2021. A timeline for the project proposal can be found below.
