5110 51st Street is also under construction. I passed by a few weeks ago and it’s a huge hole in the ground for the underground parking to be built.

Also, 1750 Broadway is going before the Design Review Commission tomorrow:

Oakland's tower wave is continuing with a new contender for the city's tallest building: Rubicon Point Partners' 423-foot proposal at 1750 Broadway.

The San Francisco-based developer wants to demolish the 30,000-square-foot former Community Bank of the Bay building and build a 37-story residential tower with 307 units. The project also includes 5,000 square feet of retail and a six-story parking garage with 210 spaces.

Rubicon provided renderings to the Business Times but declined to comment on the project.

“We focus on buying and investing in development assets in irreplaceable locations,” Ani Vartanian, managing partner at Rubicon, told the Business Times last March. “We’ve been looking to do something special in Oakland for quite some time.”

The project was first proposed in June and is being presented at the design review commission on Wednesday. The Planning Commission would vote on approval at a later date. Rubicon bought 1750 Broadway for $9.2 million in October 2016 from Tom Henderson's Callsocket in a court-ordered sale.

Tats an excerpt from the article. Renderings look pretty sweet!!
