The Key at 12th – Groundbreaking for Oakland Building
Join Mayor Schaaf, Councilmember Abel Guillen as they take shovels to one of the last remaining lots on Broadway.
According to the City of Oakland,
“The new, LEED-certified tower project will also include the restoration of the national historic landmark Key System Building, which was built in 1911 and shuttered after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.
“The project will create 500 jobs on-site during construction and provide office space for approximately 1,700 new workers once it opens for business, including employees of the University of California Office of the President, the anchor tenant. Construction is slated to be completed by December 2019.”
